|scrap pile 64 patches|
|pick four sets of contrasting prints|
|sew four strip sets|
|set the seams|
|press to the dark side|
|square it up|
There's an extra 1/2" of wiggle room built in, so go ahead and square up the one side before you proceed. I like to line up my ruler with the top and bottom edges first, then check to see if the center seam lines up squarely, too. If my piecing and pressing were accurate, and the seams nestled nicely when I stacked the sets, it usually turns out pretty square. If not, I fudge a little and make it work!
|subcut, rotate, pair right sides facing|
|feed with light fabric starting on top|
|press seams all to one side|
Anyways, hope that didn't bore you! Let me know in the comments if something is totally wrong or ridiculous, I've never posted a real tutorial here before... it's my first time so go easy on me!!
