Do the 2nd side, then the 3rd side; continue on starting back at the first side until you have covered your foundation.
    That's what I'd do.

    I've done the fun and done method where the backing is larger than the front block and that was easy. But this way just wasn't clicking in my little mind :oops: :oops: However, this does sound as easy as well as quick and gives lots more color options!

    Thanks again!! :D :D
    Glad to help sewjoyce :D

    I love the quilt pictured here! However, my little mind can't grasp her concept of putting the blocks together.....can anyone help? :oops: :oops: :oops:
    Oh, Sewjoyce, I'm so glad you posted this. I don't understand either. I thought I was brain dead from 3 days of baby-sitting the 1-yr-old great grandson. I was going to wait until I am rested to try reading it again. :oops:
