Hello All,
I am onto my 2nd quilt and I'm having difficulties getting my blocks and triangles to line/match up. I have been, I thought, extra carefull in the cutting of all my pieces but, when it comes to placing all the pieces together there is always something off kelter and doesn't fit correctly.
I have looked at the pictures that have been posted and I'm very impressed and would love to make things that look as good as these.
Can anyone give me any tips that would help me improve accuracy with my projects.

Thank you in advance for your help.

    Have you squared up your blocks? This means to make sure all are the same size before putting them together. Especially in the beginning, we all have a learning curve to accurate cutting and seaming. Being a thread or two off in that 1/4 inch seam can add up to inches later. Not a huge problem if you are aware of it.
    Pictures will help to visualize the problem.
