How to determine if your quilt is loaded squarely... the wrong way
This is what I have been working on for a very long time. Four thread colors, lots of indecision, lots of learning (I have never done curved cross hatch), lots of ruler work, bright contrasting thread on black fabric. So I get this crazy idea to attach the clamps (that I bought a year ago and have been too chicken to try) so that I can create some straight lines edge to edge in the outside sashing. I was thrilled as I was going along until I got to the last third. As you can see, I learned that my quilt was not square. At least it was not loaded squarely. Ugh! More lessons learned.
