Saturday and Sunday, I laid out the rest of the A and B blocks for Easy Street. I organized the blocks into piles so that I could do some strip piecing.
Yesterday, I pieced one block together keeping all of the rows attached to each other so that it would get out of order. I sewed the first 2 parts for the first row and then the first two parts for the next row and so on and didn't clip the rows apart. And then I sewed the third unit onto the first 2 for all the rows and so on. This is what I ended up with.
Then, I pressed the rows. I still didn't clip the rows apart. It was a little cumbersome during the pressing, but I know that nothing was out of order.
And then, I sewed the rows together and pressed the block. It is the block to the right.
I think these are turning out really well! And with this piecing technique, I am going to be able to take the piles of block parts to the basement and work on them while I do a little quilting. I might just get these blocks all assembled before the end of the month!
