There are many different ways you could assemble your piles of blocks into a quilt, but for this quilt we’re going to assemble all those blocks into strips.
First, sort them out. Make 7 piles of 20 blocks each of the 4-patch blocks. Make 8 piles of 20 blocks each of the fence rail blocks.
And sew them together.
NOTE: FOUR of your strips of four-squares should have light squares in the upper left; THREE should have dark squares in the upper left. And, don’t worry too much if you make a mistake. It will be easy to find and fix with just a little picking out.
Nope, it isn’t complicated. You already did the hard part with the cutting and block creation.
Just don’t give up.
When you are done you should have 8 fence rail strips and 7 four-patch strips for a total of 15.
Assembly next week. Be sure to visit Katy and see how hers is coming along.
And, in case you are just joining us or missed a section, all previous steps can be found HERE.

Coming along nicely! Where are the cutting instructions? Thanks
In her post, Katy mentions that when sewing the four-patch units together some rows should be sewn with the dark patch in the upper right, and a few others with the dark patch in the upper left. Do we do the same? If so, how many of each?
I’m now officially behind!
I just started 10-3-21 and sewed 15 four patch today.,Thanks for telling how many blocks we need to make for the twin size.
