Assemble Quilt Center

1. Referring to Quilt Assembly Diagram, lay out all blocks, all sashing units, and 30 sashing squares in 11 horizontal rows. Sew together pieces in each row. Press seams toward blocks. (To prevent show through, trim sashing seams to a scant 1⁄4".)

2. Join rows to make quilt center. Press seams in one direction. The quilt center should be 63-1⁄2x78-1⁄2" including seam allowances.
