Last clue to our quilt-a-long.  Hope you have enjoyed following along.  Post your pictures to our Facebook page as Donna and I would love to see what you have done.    Found another pattern for a quilt-a-long, look for it this fall.   Thank you for playing along.

1. Arrange the blocks into seven rows of six blocks. Note the fabric placement and block orientation in the picture below.
2. Sew the blocks together to form rows. Press the rows to the left on odd numbered rows and to the right in even numbered rows.
3. Sew the rows together to form the quilt center.  Press.
4.  I did not include the fabric requirements for the inner and outer border.  Thought you may just want to pull from your stash.  IF you want to follow the pattern cut six- 1 1/2 inch strips for inner border and seven - 3 1/2 inch strips for outer border.  Cut seven strips for binding.
5. Remember to measure your quilt in 3 places across length, average the three, then cut 1st border, sew on, press and repeat with top and bottom borders.  This will help to square up your quilt.

Thanks to Robert Kaufman Fabrics for the Pattern.
