Things to remember:
- Seam allowances are 1/4" unless stated otherwise
- Press all seams as you go along
- Have fun!
Using your design wall or floor, lay your blocks out in a 10 by 8 setting.
Step 1: Once you are happy with your layout, begin by piecing your first 8 blocks together - this is row 1.
Step 2: Repeat step 1 until all blocks are pieced. You will have 10 rows with 8 blocks in each row.
Step 3: Press the rows in alternating directions. For example: row 1 will be pressed to the right, row 2 to the left, row 3 to the right and so on.
Step 4: The rows can now be pieced in sequential order. Attach row 1 to 2, 2 to 3 etc
Step 5: Press these seams to one side or open - whichever you prefer.
