things I have learned....

When making a quilt, make sure and check that all your squares are identical in size before you sew the strips together, because otherwise, when you go to connect the strips they won't match and you will get really frustrated when you realize you have to take the whole thing apart and recut all the squares.

*cries, just a little*

live and learn?

but here's he thing: even if you do cut them all the same, sometimes they stretch a bit when you're sewing them and they get all wonky (yes, wonky) anyhow! i've heard of using sizing o stop this, but i'm not sure how that works???
