Squaring Up Your Quilt Blocks

I’ve been compelled to add this information as a refresher. I’ve been quilting for quite sometime now and I always thought I was squaring up my blocks right, especially my HSTs. As they say, it’s never too late to learn. I was working with a group of quilters; senior citizens to be exact, and they were learning how to square up their half square triangles. For the life of me I was having difficulty showing one of them how to do it. I had to get help from the instructor. Once she showed me. It was a breeze to show someone else. My problem was how I was turning my block after I made the initial cuts, so I decided to add two tutorials that I found on the Internet as a reminder for beginner quilters. One tutorial covers squaring up quilt blocks, and the other is on squaring up half square triangles.
