Assembling the Quilt 1. Using the quilt picture as a guide, piece the diagonal rows together. 2. After the rows are pieced, press the seams of every other row in the opposite direction. Sew the rows together to make the quilt center. Press. 3. The edges of the quilt will need to be trimmed to 1/4” above the corner of the circle block. 4. Sew the 4 1/4” x 52 1/2” strips to the long sides of the center. Press. 5. Sew the 4 1/4” x 47” strips to the top and bottom of the quilt. Press. Finishing 1. Cut the background fabric into 2- 1 1/2 yard pieces. Sew the two backing pieces together and press the seam allowances open. 2. Layer the backing, batting, and quilt top, and quilt by hand or machine, as desired. 3. Sew the binding strips together to form one long strip. Fold the binding in half lengthwise, with wrong sides together, and press. Sew the raw edges of the binding to the edges of the right side of the quilt. Turn the folded edge of the binding to the back side of the quilt and stitch in place by hand, mitering the corner seams.
