Assemble Quilt Top

1. Referring to Quilt Assembly Diagram, lay out blocks and 75 assorted teal, green, and brown print 5-1/2" setting squares in 10 vertical rows. Align the blocks so the bottom right-hand corner and the top left-hand corner of adjacent blocks meet diagonally. The rows will be uneven when pieced together; you’ll trim them later.

2. Sew together pieces in each vertical row. Press seams toward setting squares. Join vertical rows to make quilt top. Press seams open.

3. Referring to Trim Diagram, trim top and bottom edges of quilt top to square them up. The trimmed quilt top should be 50-1/2x59-1/2" including seam allowances.
