You will need to use leftover pieces from previous strips to complete the number of strips needed.
Sew a 6.5″ piece to the main block.
The next step is to take four of your smaller blocks, four 8.5″ sashing strips, and a red cornerstone and sew them into a block as shown. Be careful to sew them together so that the small red squares form an “X”. Also be careful to sew them together so that the vertical stripes of the block are across from each other.
Repeat making a total of 16 of these larger blocks. Set them aside.
Sew a red cornerstone between two sashing pieces as shown. Make 20 all together.
Now take four of your blocks and five sashing pieces. Sew the sashing pieces to them as shown.
It is really easy to turn the blocks in the wrong direction. Look at the photo closely and see how the blocks are still forming an “X” and the vertical strips in the block are still vertical. Make a total of four rows.
Connect them as shown. Make a total of five sashing strips.
Take your border strips and sew them together. Attach to your quilt and your quilt top is finished.
