Video #1 – Supplies
- The Layer Cake Squares measure 10 x 10. Make your first cut at 3-1/2″.
- That gives you one piece that measures 3-1/2 x 10 and the other is 6-1/2 x 10.
- Make sure you keep your stacks lined up (very important).
- Start with the bottom piece of fabric from the 3-1/2 x 10 stack and place it right sides together with the first piece of fabric from the 6-1/2 x 10 stack of fabric and sew a 1/4″.
- Repeat for the remaining strips ….. chain sewing is a great option.
- Snip the threads … separating your chain stitching.
- Press the seams
