Joining Blocks

Hi friends!
Mary Burnette sent me a email wanting me to show how you join your quilted blocks together.
You start by cutting two strips, one a tiny bit over 1 inch and one two inches.Then you fold the 2 inch and iron it so it's now 1 inch.
Then you sew the single strip down on the edge of the back of one block.
Flip it and pin the other , folded strip on to the front. you can pin each one down and just do one seam if you want to.
You take the next block and pin the back strip to the back of your block. sew it down then flip and fold over the doubled strip over and pin down and sew.

Like this and sew down , i like to sew on each edge.
Like this
I did two in different colors to see if i liked this fabric to use.
Not jumping up and down over either one!
I will see what else i have enough of the use.
Have a great weekend
Quilt Happy

I think you have just as much searching fabric as you do stitching!!
Have a super great weekend.
