It was time to assemble my Rainbow Scrap Challenge boat blocks so I decided to try the “webbing” technique I had heard about some time ago. To begin with, I couldn't get my head around it, so I was a bit late starting this “new to me” idea. After a bit of pondering, I had it worked out. Instead of pinning and stitching each long row, as I was used to doing, this way takes in two rows of blocks, folded over, stitched and not cutting the threads. I started off vertically, and then stitched across, the webbing holding all the blocks in place. Hope this makes sense, and I’m sure there will be detailed instructions on U Tube videos. I certainly found this to be a much easier method and will use it again.
Webbed together vertically, now to stitch each row together
More stitching took place, sewing stints of little and often works well for me and my back at the moment. But I got there in the end, attaching the borders – all done. How about a photo shoot on the clothesline outside?

With a simple pieced backing made, all I have to do is prepare the binding. Then get on with layering, pinning and quilting. One step at a time and it will slowly but surely get done.
