|grid paper, layered with interfacing and one inch fabric squares|
Next, each row was folded along the edge lines and sewn together with a 1/8" seam. I found it easier to stay lined up if I pinned about every 2".
|Laid out, ironed to interfacing, not yet stitched|
|Vertical seams stitched, and everything pressed. Note how the squares have become rectangles.|
|Vertical and horizontal seams stitched & pressed relatively flat.|
I apparently needed either a hotter iron or to iron on the reverse side, or both, as some of the squares did not stay adhered before sewing. I then pinned and sewed all the horizontal seams, again lining up & pinning each row. One word done, 7 to go.
