Here is Marilyn’s first rag quilt. Her pattern was Rag Time Quilt. This project was done while her cousin Louise was visiting from Winnipeg. Quilting for the pair has turned out to be a cherished pastime for them.
If you have blocks that are slightly irregular in shape and not a perfect square, here’s a way to press them so they will be square. Cut a square of freezer paper the size of the unfinished block is supposed to be. Press it onto the ironing board cover. Pin one of the sewn blocks to the ironing board cover, exactly matching its edges with the corners and edges of the freezer paper. Steam the block, letting it fully dry before unpinning it.
