Down Home Darling - Trimming Trick

Trimming up these blocks is a little time consuming, but very relaxing!
I have a simple trick that might make it a little easier for you. I feel like
when you trim off the little strip from the bottom up it pushes the corner
out creating a flair on the corner. This trick seems to get rid of that problem.
For your first cut turn the block upside down and trim the extra off.
Just line your ruler up with the seam. This will eliminate the flair out.
Turn the block right side up and repeat the process.
Take your time and enjoy the process. 
One perfect little block. If you are a visual learner I made
a quick YouTube video, visit my channel here and let me
know what you think.
