Luckily, Karen Walker has created a great tutorial showing how to accurately trim large blocks with a 6″ square ruler.
Her process is clear, simple and can be adapted to any large block. Follow her method and you’ll end up with accurately trimmed blocks every time.

In the tutorial, Karen demonstrates how to align the ruler with the seams of a large pinwheel block. A little creative thinking will allow you to adapt the alignment for whatever block you’re trimming.
Karen’s “Easy as Pie” quilt is a very quick project that looks like you spent a lot of time. The finished quilt is 53″ x 68″ and will be a lovely gift.
