My Weekend!

Hi friends!
Grey day!
This is the way i am joining my blocks!
First i took these blocks and trimmed them all!
That took me all day Saturday because we had company, my Sis came over brought some more scraps and some battening.. So did Clair and Lola!
Lola didn't feel good!
And Clair sleep thought the whole visit. She hadn't woke up good when they left.
So yesterday i started putting two blocks together , got five and Kim and Richard came over.
I cut I inch strips and sewed one to the front and back of one block, then i joined the front strip to the next block, flipped it over, carefully folded the back strip over and tucked it under and sewed it down.
You see it buts up against each other!
and just carefully sew it down!  If you don't make them the same size it want look right on the top of the quilt.
. Have a great sewing day friends.
Quilt Happy

Oh I'm so jealous of your scrappy blocks. I've not had time to go through my scraps and cut.

Thanks for showing us how you do it. said...

OK that looks like a great way to finish the blocks up, and have a quilt when you are finished.
