Assemble and Add Outer Border


1. Use a pencil to mark a diagonal line on wrong side of each assorted multicolor print 5-7/8" square.

2. Layer each marked multicolor print square atop a tone-on-tone 5-7/8" square. Sew each pair together with two seams, stitching 1/4" on each side of drawn line (Diagram 9).

3. Cut a pair apart on drawn line to make two triangle units (Diagram 9). Open triangle units and press seams toward multicolor print to make two triangle-squares. Each triangle-square should be 5-1/2" square including seam allowances. Repeat to make 28 triangle-squares total.

4. Sew together six triangle-squares to make a short outer border strip (Quilt Assembly Diagram; note direction of seams in triangle-squares). Press seams in one direction. The strip should be 5-1/2x30-1/2" including seam allowances. Repeat to make a second short outer border strip.

5. Sew short outer border strips to opposite edges of quilt center. Press seams toward inner border.

6. Sew together eight triangle-squares to make a long outer border strip (Quilt Assembly Diagram; note direction of seams in triangle-squares). Press first and last seams in strip away from center; press remaining seams in one direction. The strip should be 5-1/2x40-1/2" including seam allowances. Repeat to make a second long outer border strip.

7. Sew long outer border strips to remaining edges of quilt center to complete quilt top. Press seams toward inner border.
