Assemble Quilt Top

1. Referring to Quilt Assembly Diagram, lay out A–AA rectangles in 23 rows.

2. Sew together rectangles in rows; press seam allowances in opposite directions.

3. Join rows to complete the quilt top. Press seam allowances in one direction.

Finish Quilt

1. Layer quilt top, batting, and backing; baste.

2. Quilt as desired. Designer Christa Watson used free-motion quilting to create a jagged stipple design in each color row with matching thread.

3. Join the 2-1⁄2"-wide strips into a single 188"-long binding strip; bind quilt top.
