Assemble and Add Middle Border


1. Referring to Diagram 7, sew green grass print small triangles to opposite edges of a pink floral medallion 3-1/4" square. Add green grass print small triangles to remaining edges to make a Square-in-a-Square unit. Press all seams toward green grass print triangles. Trim Square-in-a-Square unit to 4-1/2" square including seam allowances. Repeat to make four Square-in-a-Square units total.

2. Sew together five Flying Geese units to make a short middle border strip (Quilt Assembly Diagram). Press seams in one direction. The strip should be 4-1/2x10-1/2" including seam allowances. Repeat to make a second short middle border strip.

3. Sew together 15 Flying Geese units and two Square-in-a-Square units to make a long middle border strip. Press seams at ends toward Square-in-a-Square units; press remaining seams in one direction. The long middle border strip should be 4-1/2x38-1/2" including seam allowances. Repeat to make a second long middle border strip. (You will have four Flying Geese units left over.)

4. Sew short middle border strips to short edges of quilt center. Join long middle border strips to remaining edges. Press all seams toward inner border. The quilt center now should be 18-1/2x38-1/2" including seam allowances.
