Assemble Quilt Top

1. Referring to Quilt Assembly Diagram, join one assorted blue print or stripe 2-1/2x32-1/2" strip and two solid white 2-1/2x21" strips to make a row. Press seams away from solid white strips. Repeat to make 37 rows total.

2. Working on a design wall, lay out rows in a pleasing fashion, moving them to the left or right to shift print or stripe sections off center as desired (Quilt Assembly Diagram).

3. Along the left-hand edge of all rows, mark a chalk line. Measure 61-1/2" to the right and mark a second chalk line along the right-hand edge of all rows. Trim rows on chalk lines (Quilt Assembly Diagram).

4. Join trimmed rows to complete quilt top. Press seams in one direction.
