Chainstitch squares 1-2, 3-4 and 5-6 together. DONT SEPARATE THE SQUARES.
Then, again chainstitch nrs 7,8 and 9 to squares 2,4 and 6. Again, DONT SEPARATE THE SQUARES.
Lay again your block on the table and fold row 1-2-7 on top of the middle row. Hold it at both sides and you will see that the tread between the squares acts like pins would do and the seams alternate and nestle almost on their own
Repeat with the other rows. If you had the seams in the upper fabric going down in the previous row, coax them now gently up in this row.
This is the result.
And the back, Now iron!
As I said before, I am not a quilter, so maybe there are lots of folks doing it this way, but I haven't seen it explained so on line, so I wanted to share it with you. I use only reclaimed scraps,soft and slippery, but it took me less than two minutes to put the block together. If you use crisp quilting cotton I bet that you can do it in a minute!
