Use a single plane and a Knife Project tool.
You can align it rather easily using Vertex Snapping.

  1. Enable Snapping to Vertex, and set it to Closest
  2. Use the move tool to move the edges
  3. Use the Mouse cursor to control which vertex it snaps to

  • $\begingroup$ Hmm I cannot seem to get it to snap :-( Did you select both the plane and the grid below before going into edit mode dropbox.com/s/q056ugjtfm49g2t/square.blend?dl=0 $\endgroup$ – RodT Feb 20 '20 at 11:49
  • $\begingroup$ Hello :). Make sure the snapping is Enabled (the magnet icon is blue). It works just fine in your file. $\endgroup$ – Jachym Michal Feb 20 '20 at 11:54
