- Arrange the Celtic Flowers on the background. When satisfied with the arrangement, heat fuse in place with an iron. Stitch around shapes as desired.
- Sew the 2 1/2" x 17" border strips to each the side of the quilt. Press.
- Sew the cornerstones to each end of the 2 1/2" x 17" remaining border strips. Sew the borders to the top and bottom of the quilt. Press.
- Layer the backing and quilt top right sides together, with the batting at the bottom.
- Pin and sew with 1/2" seam allowance, leaving an opening approximately 6" long.
- Clip excess fabric in the corners on the diagonal. Turn right-side-out.
- Tie or quilt as desired.
