Assemble Quilt Center

From remaining light blue print, cut:
45—1-1⁄2" squares

From remaining cream marble print, cut:
12—3-1⁄2×15-1⁄2" sashing rectangles
36—1-1⁄2" squares

1. Referring to Diagram 8, lay out five light blue print 1-1⁄2" squares and four cream marble print 1-1⁄2" squares in three rows. Sew together squares in each row. Press seams away from cream marble print squares. Join rows to make a Nine-Patch sashing unit; press seams in one direction. The unit should be 3-1⁄2" square including seam allowances. Repeat to make nine Nine-Patch sashing units total.

Press seams toward sashing rectangles. Join rows to make quilt center; press seams toward sashing rows. Quilt center should be 39-1⁄2" square including seam allowances.
