Assemble and Add Border
1. Referring to the photograph opposite, piece the dark print 3-1⁄2×18-1⁄2" rectangles to make 4 -- 3-1⁄2×54-1⁄2" border strips.
2. Sew pieced border strips to opposite edges of the pieced quilt center. Sew dark print 3-1 ⁄2" squares to both ends of the remaining pieced border strips. Add these pieced border strips to the remaining edges of the pieced quilt center to complete the quilt top. Press all seam allowances toward the border.
