To continue, sew a seam one quarter inch from each end. These seams should be PERPENDICULAR to the original seams:
Cut apart again, into three 1 inch sections:
At this point, press these two seams OPEN. I have the bottom section seam-up to illustrate:
Sew the middle strip sets to each double set, pressing the seams open. You now have two teeny tiny nine patches!
For the final pressing, give each a spritz of sizing, a shot with a hot steamy iron, and then immediately put a heavy book on top of them. When they cool, they'll be as flat as pancake.
My own goal is to make one set (2 blocks) per day. What's your goal?
