Layout your blocks to form a pattern.

We are going to add the sashes.

First we cut 1" strips 8 1/2 " wide for a total of 10, then cut
1 5/8" strips 8 1/2" for a total of 10.
see pictures.

The we press the 1 5/8 in half lengthwise. We attach the folded edge to the back side (red) and the 1" to the front. see strips. You have 6 blocks accross and 8 down. label each block for eg. 1 a, 1b ,1c,1d,1e,1f.
your first strip goes on the left of 1b, and attaches to 1a as seen in picture. Turn over and press the folded edge over to 1a and hand sew in place. continue doing this till each row is completed. to be continued..........

  2. Quilt as You Go seems to be all the rage and these are clear, easy to follow instructions. Your blocks are looking quite striking in that layout. I can't wait to see it all finished.
