So here we go with the step by step as well as my recommendations.
Now this is where I would do things differently. I sewed the squares onto the strips of fabrics that go in between the squares. This can get a little tricky so I would recommend sewing all the squares together first. Sew the diagonals first then attach them all together.
After the squares are sewn together you have the top layer of your blanket at this point take the strips that will go between the squares and prep them. It would be a good idea to use binding or use your binding machine so that you don’t have to iron but if you don’t want to do either of the aforementioned then take the strip of fabric and fold the raw edges towards each other so you have a nice strip of right side fabric. Pin the strips of fabric in place in between the rows and columns of squares. With the pins in place attach you binding and backing and pin around the edges.
You may start quilting now, the quilting pattern will end up a railroad track stitching. If you sew the strips on both edges you will achieve the pattern you want on the back and secure the strips in place.
Good news is after that all you have to do is binding and you are all set.
So there goes my quilting tutorial that has in process for a while but it is a quilt and it takes patience

p.s. try not to stare too hard at my imperfect quilt.
