From each blue fabric cut (1) 3 1/2 inch strip.
Strips laid out for one block.
Strips laid out ready for chain piecing.
Carefully stack them next to the sewing machine.
As I chain pieced I made sure that the I carefully set aside the third strips from each set so as to keep them in order after ironing. As I cut the threads apart between the strips, I kept them in a pile so that the last one I had just sewn was on the bottom and the first sewn was on the top. Leave the stack of 'third' strips at the sewing machine and head for the ironing board.
Carefully press the strips open, being careful not to distort the seamline. I pressed to the blue fabric every time. The stack should now be being reversed in order, as the set on the top of the stack is placed on the bottom of the new stack. This will place the sets in the same order as the stack left at the sewing machine.
Back to the sewing machine to chain piece the third strip to each set. Pay attention to which side you add the strips. The long strips have the background fabric in the middle. The short strips have the background fabric on the outside with the blue fabric in the middle.
I stacked them next to the machine just as I did the strip sets, ironing before adding the third strip. When sewing, ensure the seams are butted up next to each other snugly. I didn't pin these little ones and they turned out fine.
Not knowing any different, I chose to press these seams open.
Teeny Tiny Nine Patches. They will finish at 3 inches square.
I laid them out on the fabric I chose for my sashing. I used 1 inch strips for my sashing. I have not done any instructions for adding sashing. Maybe another time.
I'm not an authority. This is just how I did it.
