Blocking is similar to what you do when you wash a sweater—you coax the quilt block into shape. Start by placing your block on your ironing surface. Use a spray bottle to mist the block so that it is damp, not soaking wet. When fabric is moist, it has more stretch than it would have when dry, so now you can gently pull the block into position and pin on all four sides. Adjust the block so that the seams line up with your ruler. Lines on your ironing board cover can help in this process. Pin all around the edges of the block, sticking the pins straight down into the ironing board, pulling gently and misting again if necessary.
