Finished block: 3 1/2" × 3 1/2" • Finished quilt: 59 1/2" × 70"
When I first started making this quilt, I cut individual 1 ̋ × 1 ̋ squares and sewed them together to make the Nine-Patches. Thankfully a friend suggested that I use strip-piecing methods to make the Nine-Patch blocks in order to speed up the process. At first I was hesitant to do so, but after making a few blocks, I knew it was the only way to go. My speed dramatically increased and my piecing accuracy improved.
