  15. Black--8 2 1/2" x Width of Fabric (Binding)
  16. Backing Fabric--2 76" x Width of Fabric (Backing)

All seam allowances are 1/4" (6 mm).

  1. Cut the A-E patches as directed. Cut lengthwise strips as directed for the borders and crosswise strips for the binding.
  2. Using the pattern as a guide, join the A patches into thirteen rows with thirteen patches in each row.
  3. Join the rows to make the center of the quilt.
  4. Assemble the B and C patches to make four nine-patch blocks for the cornerstones of the inner border.
  5. Sew black inner border strips to each side of a fabric #6 inner border strip. Repeat to make three more inner border units.
  6. Stitch an inner border unit from Step 5 to each side of the assembled quilt center.
  7. Sew a cornerstone from Step 4 to each end of a remaining inner border unit. Repeat to sew the remaining cornerstones to each end of the last inner border unit.
  8. Stitch the inner borders from Step 7 to the top and bottom of the quilt.
  9. Repeat Step 4 with the D and E patches to construct the outer border cornerstones.
  10. Sew an outer border strip to each side of the assembled quilt.
  11. Attach the cornerstones from Step 9 to the remaining outer border pieces. Sew the outer borders with cornerstones to the top and bottom of the quilt.
  12. Cut two 76" fabric lengths from the backing fabric. Remove the selvages and join the pieces along the lengthwise edges to create a 76" x 80" (approximate) backing. Press the backing seams open.
  13. Layer the backing (face down), batting, and quilt top (face up). Use basting spray, safety pins, or basting stitches to hold the layers together. Quilt as desired.
  14. Assemble the binding strips by removing the selvages and joining the strips end-to-end. Use diagonal seams to reduce bulk. Fold the binding in half, lengthwise, and press. Bind the quilt by hand or machine.
