Assemble and Add Inner Border Units


1. Use a pencil to mark a diagonal line on wrong side of each blue tone-on-tone 2-7/8" square.

2. Layer a marked blue tone-on-tone square atop an orange print No. 1—2-7/8" square. Sew together with two seams, stitching 1/4" on each side of drawn line (Diagram 1).  Cut apart on drawn line to make two triangle units. Press each triangle unit open, pressing seam away from blue tone-on-tone, to make two blue-and-orange triangle-squares. Each should be 2-1/2" square including seam allowances. Repeat to make 38 blue-and-orange triangle-squares total.

3. Using green print 2-7/8" squares instead of orange print No. 1 squares, repeat Step 2 to make 18 blue-and-green triangle‑squares total (Diagram 2).

4. Sew together 19 blue-and-orange triangle-squares in a row (Quilt Assembly Diagram, note direction of seams). Press seams in one direction. Join triangle-square row to a yellow-and-blue floral 1-1/2x38-1/2" strip to make a side inner border unit. Press seam toward yellow-and-blue floral strip. The unit should be 3-1/2x38-1/2" including seam allowances. Repeat to make a second side inner border unit. Sew side inner border units to side edges of quilt center. Press seams toward border units.

5. Referring to Quilt Assembly Diagram, join 18 blue-and-green triangle-squares in a row; press seams in one direction. Add triangle-square row to purple dot 1-1/2x36-1/2" strip to make bottom inner border unit. Press seam toward purple dot strip. The unit should be 3-1/2x36-1/2" including seam allowances. Add bottom inner border unit to bottom edge of quilt center. Press seam toward border unit.

6. Sew together blue tone-on-tone 1-1/2x30" strip and orange print No. 2—1-1/2x30" strip to make a strip set (Diagram 3). Press seam toward orange print No. 2. Cut strip set into 18—1-1/2"-wide segments. Join segments along short edges to make a checkerboard row (Quilt Assembly Diagram). Press seams toward orange print No. 2. The checkerboard row should be 1-1/2x36-1/2" including seam allowances.

7. Sew together checkerboard row and purple dot 1-1/2x36-1/2" strip to make top inner border unit. Press seam toward purple dot. The unit should be 2-1/2x36-1/2" including seam allowances. Add to top edge of quilt center. Press seam toward border unit.
