The blocks are assembled with vertical sashing strips and two horizontal sashing rows with cornerstones. Gerri's instructions and diagrams for block construction
are clear and easy enough for a confident beginner to follow.
Gerri advises you to save cutting the inner (C.4) and outer border (A.1 & 2) strips until the center unit is complete. Then, measure the center of the quilt vertically and horizontally to determine the correct lengths for your quilt and cut to those measurements. This tip allows for individual variations in piecing with ¼" seam allowances. Sew the border strips to the top, bottom, and sides of the quilt, layer with batting and backing, pin baste, and machine quilt as desired. An allover floral or leaf pattern would suit this pretty quilt perfectly!
