I was able to buy the batik I needed to finish my Baltimore album blocks so that was a plus.
We had a nice time but I am glad to once again be back in my backwoods home.
Here are the next steps for your strippy, quilt as you go, pattern.
Adding the strips:
12” X 12” Blocks
You are going to be sewing the strips onto the batting. If desired, you can place dryer sheets between the batting and sewing machine bed.
Place first strip diagonally from one corner to another, inside the border of the 12” X 12” strip and pin in place. Place another strip, face down on the first and sew ¼” seam, on one side of the strips, through all layers. Open and press. Add a third strip face down on second, and stitch. Repeat until you reach a border edge and then add strips to the other side of the first strip.
Repeat with the remaining (3) 12” X 12” blocks.
Note: Make sure you do not stitch past the 3” border.
If a zigzag pattern is desired, refer to the photo for layout.
12” X 9” blocks
Follow the steps above except you will place the first strip from inside the drawn line to corner edge opposite. Continue adding strips ensuring that they don’t extend beyond the 3” marked border.
Repeat with the remaining (15) 12” X 9” blocks.
9” X 9” blocks
Place first strip right side up from one corner to the opposite. Pin. Place second face down on first, sew on one side, open and press. Continue adding strips on either side of the first until the block is covered.
Repeat for the remaining (14) 9” X 9” blocks.
Square all the blocks by trimming, if necessary.
