Two And Four Quiltalong: Blocks To Strips

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.

  1. 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?

Thanks for taking the time to comment. It is nice to hear from you.
