|flip your squares upside down onto the next rows squares|
This is a strange photo. But I am going to spend sometime sharing my favourite method of sewing squares or even blocks together. Now this may be old news but a few years ago, an experienced quilter shared the method with me and it was one of those mind blowing, ah ha moments. I am mostly a self taught quilter. I took a quilting class way back in 1989 before our daughter was born but it was before rotary cutters and cutting mats. Yep. For real. So when Carolyn showed this method to me, I was hooked and I do this all.the.time.
I am going to call it flip, stack and stitch.
1. Layout your quilt blocks or squares on the design wall.
2. Flip the squares or blocks upside down onto the block next to them. Be careful, you don't want to mess up your layout but the blocks or squares do tend to stick to each other.
3. Stack the squares or blocks on top of each other in the order of layout. Top squares are the top squares in the row.

7. Repeat the flip, stack, stitch with the next 2 rows of squares until all the squares are sewn together in 2 square columns. Stitch the columns together and press. Wow! You have a flimsy!!
