Press seams toward polka dot squares. Repeat to make a second side inner border strip. Join side inner border strips to side edges of quilt center; press seams toward
quilt center.

2.    Join three small boat blocks and two white polka dot 6-1⁄2" squares, alternating blocks and squares, to make a top inner border strip (Quilt Assembly Diagram).

3.    Sew navy polka dot 1-1⁄2×42-1⁄2" middle border strips to long edges of quilt center. Join navy polka dot 1-1⁄2×32-1⁄2" middle border strips to remaining edges. Press all seams toward middle border. 

4.    Cut and piece crosswise-cut white boat print 6-1⁄2×42" strips to make:
