and each end and in the center. Sew together along long edge. Press seam toward strip #2. Check to see that the strips are not bowed (curved).

5. Lay each strip set along a horizontal line on your cutting mat, and trim the printed selvage end along a vertical line on the mat. Sew strip sets together into 2 sets of 2,
sewing the 12th strip of the first set to the 1st strip of the 2nd set, and pressing seam toward #12.
6. Fold strip set in half, right sides facing, aligning the long edges, and making sure that the strip set is not skewed. Sew this final seam to turn the strip set into a tube. Press
seam toward strip #12. Turn the tube right side out. Repeat with the other strip set.
