    Hello from Washington

    New to the site, I am a self taught quilter, currently working on a tough project. I have sewn 34 nine block patches, out of 4 inch squares, with an Oakland Raiders theme. Now I have to square them up SOMEHOW. So far all the information I can find on squaring up nine block patches do not relate to the one I have created.

    I have also obtained the EQ7 software program for my computer, and am struggling through to find the best layout for my quilt. Unfortunately, I have still to read the manual....read or sew...hmmmm. This is a very special quilt for my stepson, so I am taking my time with it.

    I appreciate any hints tips or education you care to send my way.

    I buy fabric on the whim, with projects in mind, but refuse to start anything new before this project is done.

    I look forward to meeting you and sharing our quilting adventures!

    Welcome to the board! I also am from Washington, Olympia on the West side of the state. If you have already sewn your 9 patch blocks together, measure each block to see how much you need to square up prior to cutting. If you only need to trim a little bit, then go ahead and square. If you have more than an inch of cutting on any block, you may want to check your 1/4 inch seam allowances to see if you need to rip any seams out and resew. If you are anywhere near me, I'd be happy to chat and see if I can be of any help. Happy Quilting
    A quilt is a hug for future generations.

    Welcome from Ontario, Canada. If your 9 patch blocks only need a slight trim then you can do so without distorting the blocks too much. If you have more than a little to trim off, the blocks will become smaller on the outside than the center block. In this case you can either just go with the distorted but squared blocks or turn them into another pattern where the size difference would be less noticeable like ......Disappearing 9 Patch. There is a tutorial on Quilting Board I think?
