Beyond the Cherry Trees!

Just completed Block 24 only one more block to do.
I still have the borders but I thought I would wait until I got the center put together so I could be sure of the size.  I always get so nervous when I start squaring up blocks and cutting borders.
You put all that work into the applique'  one slip of the cutter and your starting over.
I wonder how some of you square up your blocks?
Happy stitching,
Nancy

Love it! I think we all can relate to that feeling of anxiety when squaring blocks! I use a large square ruler, and I try to have the ruler the same size as the block that I'm squaring so I don't have to worry about the centering so much.
