Step 6

Assembly

  1. Referring to the color quilt image, arrange blocks in eight rows of six blocks, so they form the larger secondary block design. Place a Fabric M white 1-1/4” x 11“ (3.18cm x 27.94cm) strip between blocks of each row. Sew the strips and blocks into rows.
     
  2. Stitch the twelve white Fabric M 1-1/4“ x WOF (3.18cm x WOF) strips together end-to-end. From this, cut seven 67-1/4” (170.82cm) lengths.
     
  3. Sew a white Fabric M 67-1/4” (170.82cm) strip to the bottom of the top seven rows of blocks. Sew the rows together.

Finishing

  1. Sew the two lengths of backing together along selvage edges creating a two-panel wide backing. Layer the backing, batting and quilt top. Quilt or tie as desired.
     
  2. Prepare binding from eight 2-1/2” x WOF (6.35cm x WOF) Fabric M white strips. Sew strips together into one long binding strip. Press strip in half lengthwise.
     
  3. Carefully trim backing and batting even with quilt top.
     
  4. Leaving an 8” (20.32cm) tail of binding, sew binding to top of quilt through all layers matching all raw edges. Miter corners. Stop approximately 12” (30.48cm) from where you started. Lay both loose ends of binding at along quilt edge. Where these two loose ends meet, fold them back on themselves and press to form a crease. Using this crease as your stitching line, sew the two open ends of the binding together right sides together. Trim seam to 1/4” (.64cm) and press open. Finish sewing binding to quilt.
     
  5. Turn binding to back of quilt and blind stitch in place.
