Pick the color scheme to your liking, of course we are using combinations of R-W & B. For each block you will need six 2 ½" strips...the goal is a 12" square block. The strips will be sewn together with a 'scant ¼" seam. General layout Left to Right...dark color, light color, two dark colors, light color, dark color. When you have sewn the number of blocks you have estimated for the quilt size, got everything pressed you will start sewing the blocks together.
Laying two blocks together, right side to right side, one horizontal, one vertical then sew together.
Sew one side, then the opposite side making a tube. This has been found to help keep the block square. Finish by sewing the remaining two sides.
Okay I don't have a clue here. Elaine says she sews seams vertical strip up.
Once you have all of the blocks sewn together you will cut the sewn together blocks on the diagonal, corner to corner.
Not once but twice...
