  3. Sew the squares together to form rows.
  4. Sew the rows together. Press.


  1. Layer the backing, batting and quilt top. Quilt by hand or machine as desired.
  2. Sew binding strips together to form one long strip. Fold wrong sides together lengthwise and press.
  3. With a 1/4" seam, sew the raw edges of the binding to the edges of the right side of the quilt. Turn the folded edge of the binding to the back side of the quilt and stitch in place by hand, mitering the corners.
