Straight is overrated. Cut crooked. Call it all "improvisational modern quilting." All is fair in fun and quilting.

Two things I have found that really help with cutting straight and sewing straight. June Tailors Shape Cut rulers and a 1/4 foot with guide.They work great! You might want to give them a try!

Or... Do some curved piecing. I love my 1/4 inch foot with guide.

Or. . . When God was handing out LOOKS, I thought he said BOOKS so I asked for a scary one!
and one more. . . When God was handing out BRAINS, I thought he said TRAINS so I said give me a slow one!

LOLOL! Love it thimblebug!

I do nothing straight and I don't apologize for it...much. The Amish leave a vanity block in their quilts, mistakes on purpose. In the Amish world, only God is perfect and we haven't the right to aspire to it. I have LOTS of vanity blocks...does that make me humble? BAH!
