The quilt consists of 7 blocks across and 8 blocks down.  Rotate the blocks so the small squares match and touch at a diagonal.  Repeat block pattern throughout layout and sew together the quilt top once the desired layout has been achieved.

Next, finish the quilt!  Make a quilt sandwich with quilt top, batting, and backing. Machine or hand quilt as desired and bind using 6 strips of 42” x 21⁄2” fabric sewn together.
