  3. Sew the 6 rows together to form the quilt center.
  4. Sew the 1 1/2" white border Strips to the sides of the quilt center first, then sew the top and bottom border Strips. Sew the 1 1/2" yellow print and blue border Strips to the quilt in the same manner.

  1. Layer the backing, batting and quilt top. Quilt by hand or machine, as desired.
  2. Sew binding strips together to form one long strip. Fold wrong sides together, lengthwise, and press.
