14. Now you need to cut sashing strips to join the blocks together Ė you need a strip to go between each block to join them in rows Ė later, youíll 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 Ĺ 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 ľ 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 doesnít confuse you ! Youíll notice that we changed blocks. Thatís 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. Iíve sewn the sashing strip to the first block and finger pressed it open. Now Iíve 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.
