    I do this as well, it makes squaring up do much easier and more accuate.

    One of the most important things to think about in trimming the HST, is to be sure the 45 degree line on your ruler is on the diagonal seam line. Also, if you have a Boston block, watch out for the other point. Make sure there is seam allowance enough so you don't lose that point. I made a quilt last year and put the ruler into the corner to trim and lost all my points on the Boston blocks.

    Thats what's do, too. You can always trim off, but if you're too small, it's hard to manage it.
