Fold the quilt top so that the first two long rows of squares are right sides together. Sew a seam a ¼” away from the fold, along the full length. Fold again so that the next two long rows are right sides together. Sew a seam a ¼” away from the fold, along the full length. Continue until all long rows are sewn together (4 long seams total.)
Use a small, sharp scissor or snip and make small snips into the seam allowance where the short rows of squares intersect at 2 ½” intervals. Snip just to the stitching line. Be careful not to cut through the stitching line.
Press the seams in opposite directions, alternating every other row. (Possible now that you’ve snipped them free!)
Sew the short rows together, just as you did with the long rows, by folding the fabric and stitching 1/4” away from the fold.
Press the quilt top.
Layer with batting and background fabric.
Quilt as desired. I used a simple cross hatch on my wall hanging.
Cut three lengths of binding fabric, 2 ¼” wide. Join on the diagonal. Fold wrong sides together to make French fold binding. Attach the bindng in your preferred manor.
Hang and enJOY!
