Assemble Quilt Top
Measurements include 1/2" seam allowances. Sew with right sides together unless otherwise stated.
Referring to Quilt Assembly Diagram, lay out solid pink, pink stripe, solid green, green stripe, solid lavender, and lavender stripe 7×28" strips in a row. Using 1/2" seams, join strips to make quilt top. Finger-press seams in one direction. The quilt top should be 28×37" including seam allowances.
1) Layer quilt top, batting, and backing; baste.
2) Quilt as desired. Designer Julie Hendricksen stitched an allover heart and scroll pattern across this quilt.
3) Bind with lavender print flannel binding strips.
