Just butt them up You will sew them down with on each side to attach the blocks to youCut a 2 inch bias strips Don’t know how many Do not fold….. take your bias strips and lay them down evenly on the butted blocks. Sew on both sides If you run out of bias strips just but them up, no need to sew the down I don’t think I even cut the fringe/ I add a light batting quilted the front vest I cut the back out of demine and did not do anything with it just a single layer. that’s about how I did it. Sew them all together and cut out bias Binding for the arm hole and around the edge of vest/ that’s about all I remember of it.sorry I could not explain it better. Get in touch with me if you need help. I plan on making me a white one. soon.Marie”
