Assemble Circle Unit

1. Referring to Diagram 3, layer a Unit B atop bottom edge of Unit A, aligning stitching lines. Pin through stitching lines. Open Unit B to check alignment; adjust and repin, if necessary. Once positioned correctly, sew units together along matched stitching lines, beginning 1" from left-hand edge and stopping at right-hand edge. Trim seam to 1⁄4", if necessary, and press open.

3. Holding unsewn portion of first Unit B out of the way, repeat Step 2 to add remaining Unit B to left-hand edge of Unit A (Diagram 5).

4. Finish stitching remaining portion of Step 1 seam (Diagram 6). Press open to make circle unit.
