Moving Along …

So…here we are again. Let’s get all these strips and bits together so that they actually look like something. Above you can see the center strip. It measures 12×3. But, as with the whole approach to this quilt, exact measurements are not crucial and an extra quarter to half inch in any direction only adds to the improvisational look and great off-kilter feel. Around this strip I’ve arranged some of the sub strips I made in the last post, in a way that looks good to me.
Here, I’ve pieced the strips together, and I’ll be sewing them to the center strip.
Ok, so that was easy! And before I can put on the other two strips, those little straglers have to go.
Ahhh…that’s so much better. Now we can proceed with the other two strips!
Still with me?! I’ve sewed on the other two strips and things are beginning to come together. Almost there…
Voila! Here’s the inner block. Tune in next time when we’ll add outer borders and talk about putting these blocks together!
