So, moving along…here we go with making multiple strip sets. Making several different strip sets helps ensure that each block is slightly different. Here, I had some three strip sets, and some four strip sets. I have a few others made as well.
A word on piecing the strips. By all means, perfection and an accurate 1/4 inch seam are not all that important. In fact, I made it a point to let the seams go together as they wanted to. This was in keeping with an improvisational and off-kilter, imperfect design. Which I love. Here’s a closeup of the back of one of my seams.
Then, when you have all your strip sets made and without your straight edge ruler, cut perpindicularly. The width of each cut should be 2 to 2 1/2 inches. You’ll end up with many pieces of three and four piece sub strips.
Pictured are four different strip sets beginning to be cut into sub strips.
Keeping up? Have I lost you? Please put all questions in the comments section and I’ll answer them all. Next post will be about piecing the rectangle together!!
