Read all of the assembly instructions before you begin.
Arrange the Quilt Components
- Arrange the squares and half square triangle units as shown into eleven horizontal rows, each row with ten units.
- If you're going scrappy, step away from the design for awhile and then return. Do you still like the layout? If not, switch fabrics around until you're satisfied with the look.
- Place a flannel square behind each front square and a backing square behind each flannel. The wrong side of the backing squares should touch the flannel.
- Sew each stack of three fabrics to the stack next to it in the first row, placing wrong sides together and using a 1/2" seam allowance.
- Assemble remaining rows.
Sew Rows TogetherSew the eleven rows together with 1/2" seams, taking care to place wrong sides together when you join rows. Use pins to secure fabrics and match seams.
Alternate Row AssemblySometimes long, narrow rows can get a little stretchy. If you prefer, sew half of the components of each row together. Join three or four half rows from top to bottom, then do the same for the opposite side of the tree. Join the units at their centers.
Continue sewing half rows from top to bottom and then creating rectangular sections from them. See the illustration on page 4 for a visual of this method.
