Blocks and QAYG

Hi friends!
The next row of my daughters quilt.

I made these and two more rows on my strip quilt, some fabric fell over and found some more strips.
That's not all i need , i think i figured 9 blocks and this is just three i have made so far.
Some one was wanting me to post more pictures so she could get the GQUG so here goes, maybe this will be more explicit.
Here i pinned both strips on to sew them together , the one inch and the 2 inch folded.front and back.
All sewed on now you turn both blocks so the back is up.
Then you lay your top block with the back facing the back of the other block.
Then you pin! That's the back of both blocks facing each other then you sew it on.
see you have the front facing up and the other block front is facing down.
And it folds out like this!
Then you just pin the folded strip over and sew down.
I hope that helps explain it a little better.
Have a good one
Quilt Happy

I love your comment about some fabric falling over so you found more strips. That sounds like my house!

Thanks, I'll certainly try once again. I had nearly forgotten how to do this.
