From your sashing fabric you will need to cut 16 strips that measure 1 1/4"x 5 1/2".
For your cornerstones (mine are brown), cut four (4) 1 1/4" squares and eight (8) 1 1/4" x 2" rectangles. Trust me on the oversizing.
Lay out your blocks and sashing in a pleasing manner.
Looking at the quilt layout below add your brown rectangles to the sashing having them as the outer sections of the quilt. (they will be trimmed to triangles later) Put the four (4) 1 1/4" squares in the center. Press these towards the blue sashing.
Add sashing to the blocks and half blocks.
I over-sized my corner triangles and outer cornerstones so I need to trim them up before adding a border.
Be sure to measure across the center of your quilt to get the correct measurements for YOUR top.
For the border cut 2 strips 16 7/8" x 3", add to two sides.
Cut two more strips 21 1/4 x 3" and add to the other two sides.
Admire your quilt top!
