Very interesting!! Thank you for sharing this, I've never seen or heard of doing that before. When I've heard of "blocking" a quilt it's been in the context of laying out all your blocks, trying different layouts or configurations and deciding which you like best - that is "blocking out" to me. I've never "blocked" a wall quilt, didn't even know I was supposed to be doing that!


great tutorial, Vicki! I sometimes block half-heartedly but will definitely adopt your process from now on to get better results.

I've blocked knitting, but never quilting. Maybe because I usually send my quilts out to be quilted. Or maybe because I don't usually hang my quilts. Food for thought. I like the idea of celebratory chocolate.


Very informative. I usually make quilts for daily use or very small wall hangings, but I've been looking at patterns for medium-sized wall quilts for which these instructions would be perfect. Thanks so much for sharing your experiences!


Do you only block wall quilts? What if they are washed again, do they need to be reblocked? I can see value in this. thanks!


This is very good information. Duly noted.


I have never blocked a quilt, but now if I need to I know how! Thanks!


I think it is useful to note that the celebratory chocolate is the important step in the process. As opposed to medicinal chocolate for when you are feeling bad. Or consolatory chocolate for when you lose something. Either way, chocolate is good.
