  4. Press the seam allowances all towards the bottom of the strip. Set aside.
  5. Attach the dual feed foot.

  7. Place a plain strip on right side down on top of the pieced strip (these two will be right sides together). Pin.
  8. Place pieced strip 4 right sides up underneath the plain 6” strip (these two will be right sides together). Re-pin through the new layers.
  9. Place batting underneath all.
  10. Align the edges of the fabric and batting with the edge of the Dual Feed. This will be a bit more than 1/4”. Stitch the strip in place.
  11. Fold out the pieces and press with steam. Pin the new edges together.
  12. Repeat, adding the remainder of the strips in the same manner. Always combine a pieced strip and a solid strip right side together. On the side where strip #1 was placed, strip #2 goes next. On the side where strip #4 was placed strip #5 goes next, etc.
  13. Stitch the outer edge on the final strip securing the edges together.
