Assemble Quilt Center

1. Referring to quilt center top row in Quilt Assembly Diagram, lay out two star units, two yellow dot D triangles, two white dot D triangles, and two yellow dot E triangles. (If you want directional fussy-cut motifs to go in one direction, pay attention to hexagon orientation in star units.) Sew one white dot D triangle and one yellow dot D triangle to opposite edges of each star unit. Press seams toward D triangles. Then join all pieces in the row. Press seams toward right-hand end of row. Trim excess yellow dot D triangles even with long edges of E triangles to make a two-star row. Repeat to make three two-star rows total.

2. Referring to quilt center second row in Quilt Assembly Diagram, lay out one star unit, four gray dot D triangles, and two yellow dot F pieces. First sew two D triangles to opposite edges of star unit. Then sew a D triangle to each F piece. Press seams toward D triangles. Join all pieces in the row to make a one-star row. Press seams toward left-hand end of row. Repeat to make a second one-star row.

3. Referring to Quilt Assembly Diagram, join two-star rows and one-star rows to make quilt center. Press seams in one direction. The quilt center should be 18-1⁄2x34-3⁄8" including seam allowances.
