Assemble and Add Inner Border

1.    Draw a diagonal line on wrong side of each light floral 2-1⁄4" square.

2.    Align a marked light floral square with one end of a dark brown print 2-1⁄4 ×16-1⁄2" strip (Diagram 3; note direction of drawn line). Stitch on drawn line, then trim, leaving a 1⁄4" seam allowance. Press open attached triangle, pressing seam toward light floral. In same manner, add another marked light floral square to opposite end of dark brown print strip to make a brown border unit. Repeat to make 10 brown border units total.

3.    Referring to Quilt Assembly Diagram, sew together three brown border units in a row. Press seams open. Add a light floral 2-1⁄4 ×48-1⁄2 strip to one long edge of joined border units to make a long inner border strip. Press seam toward dark brown print. The strip should be 4×48-1⁄2" including seam allowances. Repeat to make a second long inner border strip.

4.    Sew together four assorted print 2-1⁄4" squares in pairs (Diagram 4). Press seams in opposite directions. Join pairs to make a Four-Patch unit. Press seam in one direction. The unit should be 4" square including seam allowances. Repeat to make four Four-Patch units.

5.    Referring to Quilt Assembly Diagram, sew together two brown border units in a row. Press seams open. Add a light floral 2-1⁄4 ×32-1⁄2 strip to one long edge of joined border units. Press seam toward dark brown print. Add a Four-Patch unit to each short end to make a short inner border strip. Press seam away from Four-Patch units. The strip should be 4×39-1⁄2" including seam allowances. Repeat to make a second short inner border strip.

6.    Sew long inner border strips to long edges of quilt center. Add short inner border strips to remaining edges. Press all seams toward inner border. The quilt center now should be 39-1⁄2 ×55-1⁄2" including seam allowances.
