Assemble the Baby Girl Quilt Center
1. Sew ivory print 2-1/2x8-1/2-inch rectangles to opposite short edges of the pink tone-on-tone print appliqué foundation (Block Assembly Diagram). Sew ivory print 2-1/2x14-1/2-inch rectangles to remaining edges to make a center block. The center block should be 14-1/2x12-1/2 inches including seam allowances. Press all seams toward the ivory print.
2. Lay out the center block, pink print rectangles, and ivory print sashing strips (Quilt Assembly Diagram). Join the pieces in sections and the sections in rows. Join the rows to make the quilt center. Press all seams toward the pink prints. The quilt center should be 29-1/2x36-1/2 inches including seam allowances.
