Assemble Quilt Top
1. Lay out blocks in three rows (Quilt Assembly Diagram). Sew together blocks in each row. Press seams in one direction, alternating direction with each row.
2. Join rows to make quilt center. Press seams in one direction. The quilt center should be 24-1⁄2" square including seam allowances.
3. Sew short solid black border strips to opposite edges of quilt center. Join long solid black border strips to remaining edges to complete quilt top. Press all seams toward border.
