Knowing that I have a few followers who may not have heard of this technique, I decided to take pictures.
First, I pieced together five strips lengthwise. The white strips were 1 1/2" wide. and the black 7/8" wide. I used scant 1/4" seams, and reduced my stitch length from the 2.5 default to 1.5, as I knew I would be slicing it into smaller pieces.
Then the resulting pieced length was cross cut into 3/4" strips.
Then a black strip, cut 7/8" wide, was added to one long side of each small white strip. Again using a scant 1/4" seam allowance.
Here is the resulting long strip, which has been trimmed along each long side. This long strip was placed over backed batting, and carefully centered. Then wide white strips were sewn to each long side, using a sew and flip method. This will now be machine quilted, trimmed to size and bound.
I plan to link this to Lisa-Marie Sayre's Off the Wall Friday, and The Needle and Thread network.
