Quilt Along: Part Eight

We're now going to put together the smaller blocks that go around the centre block and border.

I've separated the blocks into six stacks from when I laid the quilt out on the floor. It also helps to take a picture of the blocks as you've laid them out for easy reference. Ask me how I know :)

The blocks are divided into...
a. Left inner blocks
b. Right inner blocks
c. Top (first row) inner blocks
d. Second row inner blocks
e. Third row inner blocks
f. Bottom (fourth row) inner blocks

It'll make sense eventually. Promise.

1. We're starting with the blocks (Stacks a and b) that'll go on the sides of the inner blocks.
The left and right are the same, so for each side, you'll need two nine-patch blocks with a diamond block in the middle.

2. Pin to the centre block and border and sew together.

Press and admire :)

3. Repeat with the right side -- two nine patch blocks with a diamond block in the centre again.

If you're just joining in, here's likes to Parts one through seven.
The next part will finish the inner blocks, and I'll post that in a couple of days.

You ned to edit the second sentence after in the #1. You say two pinwheel blocks instead of 9 patches.
