Step 1: Use a ruler to draw two diagonal lines on your paper 1.5" apart.
Step 2: Place a 1.5" wide strip of solid white fabric on the paper between the lines. Tack the strip down using a couple pieces of painter's tape on one side. (Painter's tape is easily removed and reuseable for this project.)
Let's get ready to repeat the process on the other side of the white strip. Fold the paper out of the way so it won't be in the seam you are about to stitch.
Step 5: Keep adding strips on each side - moving the paper out of the way until you have enough fabric to cover the square of paper.
Step 6: Once you have enough strips added to cover the paper, press your block.
Step 7: Place your block face down on a cutting mat. Line it up with your mat's grid if it has one. And slice the edges off to square up your block. (Note - I use the grid as my guide, not just the paper.)
Step 8: Gently rip the paper off the block. I like to hold the seam at the top to make sure I don't rip out any stitches with the paper. :-) Using thin paper and a shortened stitch will make this easier.
Repeat! Again, I will be making 2 per week for a total of 80 over the next 10 months/40 weeks. :-)
