Well, I just can't figure out where I'm going wrong. My squares are turning out to be longer than wide and I can't sew them together edge to edge. I am trying to sew them together so that one square has the strips vertically

This way has you quilt the tip and batting, press seams open, and then add the back and stitch in the ditch. I want to try this but that makes me a little nervous, also it seems like the seams might be pretty bulky. I want to try quilt as you go but I don't want to hand stitch the back or add sashing so this seemed like a good alternative. Thanks!

I hope this is the right place to show it. Thank you very much for your warm welcome aboard.
This is my first attemp to make a quilt 30 years ago when I was in college. The proyect was bigger but it went UFO several month later ..... (too much study and... partys I think ).
Two years ago I rescued it from my mom's attic, I re-learned to crochet
