I LOVE squaring up HST...my Quilt Sampler quilt has 320 and I made two of those quilts. I use either the Deb Tucker - Tucker Trimmer or Eleanor Burns HST ruler...easy peasy

Nope, not me. But I get tremendous satisfaction from the little pile of trimmings when I'm finished!

Truth bomb. And yet, we all insist on using them in some of our quilts

Exactly. Which is why I prefer to make them the "old fashioned" way, so I don't have to trim them when I'm done.

What I do like is squaring them up before pressing them open with the Quilt in a Day ruler...Its is fabulous! My new favourite ruler!

I confess that I don't like to do it either and it does seem to be a waste of time but they are so beautiful when they are all squared up and it is a good satisfaction to know our quilts will come out nice. Good for you. Looks like you have a few to go. You will be done in no time! It's just one of those necessary evils.
