INSTRUCTIONS

STEP 2. LAY OUT ROWS

Lay out your blocks into 4 rows of 4 blocks each to get a rough idea of where you would like your blocks to go. Once you have decided on a layout, attach ONE 2” x 12 ½” rectangle to a left or right side of each block, and ONE 2” x 14” rectangle to the top or bottom varying the placement of strips. Block now measures 14” unfinished.

Arrange Blocks for a final time on a design wall or floor. If you need to, add any 2” x 54.5” horizontal sashing strips to break up blocks. I added one between my 3rd and 4th rows.

Sew blocks together into 4 rows each of four blocks, adding in any full sashing rows you might need to achieve a scattered look.

STEP 3.  ADD BORDERS

Measure quilt. Cut and add left/right inner border (approximately 2” x 56”) and then top/bottom border (approximately 2” x 57 ½”). Your border measurements will depend on how many horizontal sashing strips you have added. Measure quilt. Cut and add left/right outer border (approximately 3.5” x 59”) and top/bottom border (approximately 3.5” x 63 ½”). Your border measurements will depend on how many horizontal sashing strips you have added.
