Quilt as you go Houston Stars 2
I machine quilted in the ditch with a walking foot and still with the walking foot added joining strips to the back and front of blocks. The top strip was one inch wide and single thickness and placed right sides together. As I was using the walking foot I marked the sewing lines a quarter inch from each edge. The white strip on the reverse was cut one and a half inches wide and folded over and placed on the back of the block with the raw edges at the edge of the block. Both were pinned in place and I attached both at the same time sewing through all thicknesses. Then the top strip was pressed forward.
