  2. Sew rows together as shown in the Quilt Assembly Diagram on back page. Press seams in one direction.

Borders:

With right sides together (and making sure that the design is oriented correctly, with the stripe portion of the design at the inner border), pin border strips to sides of quilt top (border strips should extend approximately equally beyond top and bottom of quilt; it’s easiest if you start pinning at the center of border and work outward). Sew border strips to sides of quilt top, beginning and ending 1/4" from raw edges of quilt. Backstitch to secure. Press seams toward borders. Now sew the top and bottom border to the quilt top; start and stop your seams at the point where the side borders join the quilt (1/4" from edges). Backstitch to secure. Press seams toward borders. Miter corners using your favorite technique.
