Let’s see how we got here.

You should have all your blocks sewn together. At this point, I like to lay it all out. It is my last chance to move my blocks around to get just the right positioning of each. I also add the last of the background pieces. Seeing it like this gives you one more chance to make changes.

**HINT – I step back and take a picture with my phone. Then I study the layout in that picture. For some reason the picture makes it easier to spot problems.

I think I am happy with my block Placements. My colors are spread out nicely. (this is the picture I looked at on my phone to make changes.) Now to put together the sections.

Start with the Block A’s on the sides of the quilt. Add a Piece P to both sides.

The Middle 2 Block A’s on the sides get sewn together and then add a Piece Q on one side. Make sure it is on the inside of the Section according to the layout.

For the top of the Center, it will start with 3 Sections. For the First and Third Sections, you will add Pieces O and N. For the Middle Section, you will add 2 Piece M’s. Sew the 3 Sections together. Make one more Center, only flip it upside down for the bottom.

Sew 4 Block B’s together for the Center.

Assembling the quilt is done in 3 columns.

First, Sew the sections together in each column.

Then, sew the 3 columns together.

At This point, you will add the final borders. If you are making the larger quilt, you will see the layout in the next picture.
