We're going to finish putting together the smaller blocks and complete the centre of the quilt.
In Part eight, I talked about separating your smaller blocks into six stacks to make it easier for you to keep track of what block goes where. We've already attached the left and right sides to the centre with stacks a and b.
In this part, we'll be attaching four rows of smaller blocks, two on top, and two at the bottom.
We'll need ten smaller blocks for the top two rows.
1. Place your blocks like so...
Top row: diamond, pinwheel, nine-patch, pinwheel, diamond
Second row: pinwheel, nine-patch, diamond, nine-patch, diamond
(Refer to the picture above for placement.)
4. Attach the two rows to the centre blocks that you finished in Part eight.
Repeat this step for the bottom of the centre. Please do note that the third and last rows at the bottom are mirrored from the top two rows, and the blocks are placed like so...
Third row: pinwheel, nine-patch, diamond, nine-patch, pinwheel
Last row: diamond, pinwheel, nine-patch, pinwheel, diamond
