- Arrange your quilt blocks into seven rows as shown, each row with five alternating blocks. Sew blocks in each row together.
- Press seam allowances between blocks in adjacent rows in alternate directions where possible.
- Sew rows together, matching all seams carefully. Press the quilt.
- Use my straight border instructions to add borders. Make the inner border from 2" wide strips and the outer border from 5-1/2" wide strips.
If you are a new quilter, don't be tempted to make borders that match the measurements along the sides of your quilt. Borders offer an opportunity to correct inconsistencies, leaving you with a quilt that's in-square along its edges.
- Mark for quilting if necessary. Sandwich the quilt with batting and backing. Quilt. Trim and square-up excess edges and sew binding strips around the quilt.
