11. Here’s the finished block, all trimmed. Make the rest of your blocks in the same way.

12. Here’s the back of the block – when you were piecing the block, you were quilting it at the same time !

13. Here’s all my blocks laid out on the design wall – some are vertical, some horizontal and some diagonal to make the design. Just play around and have fun !

14. Now you need to cut sashing strips to join the blocks together – you need a strip to go between each block to join them in rows – later, you’ll cut sashing strips to join the rows together. The strips need to be an inch wide and the length of the unfinished side of your block. Mine are 1 inch x 6 ½ inches. I need 4 strips per row and I have 4 rows so I cut 16 in total.

15. Now you take a sashing strip and sew it right sides together to the edge of the first block, using a scant ¼ inch seam.

16. Finger press the sashing strip open. You can see that it extends 3/4 inch past the block.

17a. OK, hope this doesn’t confuse you ! You’ll notice that we changed blocks. That’s because I forgot to take pics of this stage so had to go and mock up these crazy blocks to show you the next bit ! Sorry about that ! So I made two crazy blocks (using the same technique as the string blocks we just made !).

17b. I’ve sewn the sashing strip to the first block and finger pressed it open. Now I’ve laid the first block right side down on top of the right side of the second block, so that the raw edge of the sashing strip matches the raw edge of the block.

17c. Then I sew the sashing strip to the second block using a scant ¼ inch seam. I’m still using my walking foot BTW.
