Assemble the Quilt

1. Referring to Quilt Assembly Diagram for placement, lay out the square-in-a-square blocks, the setting blocks, and 18 blue toile setting triangles in diagonal rows. If the toile print is directional, make sure the toile pieces are positioned correctly.

2. Sew together the pieces in each row. Press the seam allowances toward the setting blocks and setting triangles.

3. Join the rows. Press the seam allowances in one direction. Add the blue toile corner triangles to the pieced rows to complete the quilt center. The pieced quilt center should measure 64-1/4x77", including the seam allowances.
