You continue to add the accumulated block to new strips until you are approaching the size you finally want.

I found that my block was looking a bit square so I cut the sides off at a bit of an angle as I prefer it to look a bit haphazard.

I have included the photo above to clarify how the growing block is stitched to the next strip.


Once the block is near the required size you can use a template and a square (not sure what that's called) to check the size. You can turn the block in any way to find the area you want to use. It may be necessary at this stage to add a piece to one edge if the size or shape isn't quite there.
