Piecing the Quilt Top:

- Press the seams open.
- Fold one 10" x 60" pieced square strip onto the Strips die lengthwise and die-cut. Repeat with eight remaining pieced strips.
- Using the photo as a guide, lay out the 36 60" strips to form the quilt top.
- Sew the rows together, alternating the direction of the sewn seams. Press.
- Layer the backing, batting and quilt top. Quilt by hand or machine as desired.
- Sew the binding Strips together to form one long Strip. Fold wrong sides together lengthwise, and press.
- With a 1/4" seam, 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 corners.
