The quilt is sewn together in vertical rows. Each vertical row has 2 Blocks A, 2 Blocks B, 1 Block C and 1 Block D. The assembly diagram shows how I arranged the blocks in rows to make my quilt.
Quilt Assembly Diagram
You can arrange your rows exactly like mine or you can play with an arrangement of your own for each row. Just remember, each row must have 2 Blocks A, 2 Blocks B, 1 Block C and 1 Block D in each row. A design wall is a great help in making your own arrangement. You can place the blocks on the wall then step back to see how you like your arrangement. You can play with changing blocks around until you get an arrangement pleasing to your eye. Then just sew it all together.
Now to cut and sew the borders. Yes, that's right we are going to finish the quilt top this week. Quilts made in the modern style use lots of white and also use gray. So I used white borders with gray binding to give the quilt a modern frame.
Next week I will show the photograph of my finished quilt and announce the winner of the Log Cabin Quilts book that my sister and I wrote. Remember to leave a comment. Your name will be entered each week as you leave comments, that way you will be added to the giveaway more than once.
Sunbonnet Sleuth Mystery #6 will begin the first week of March.
