Japanese Meshwork - quilt as you go

This is a note for my Meshwork students who have completed the basics in meshwork and are now proceeding onto more intricate weaves from the Meshwork Books.  The best way to join your meshwork blocks together or into a quilt is to use the "quilt as you go" method.

Cut front strip 1 1/8" and back strip 1 3/4".  Iron the back strip in half.

Place the front strip onto the right side edge of your block with the back strip at the back.
Sew a 1/4" seam. 

Then sew the other side of the front strip onto the right side of your next block.

Once the two blocks are joined by the front strip, turn your blocks over, pin the back folded edge onto the second block butting the two edges together. Hand stitch down.
