 Following Part: Nine



Now you will assemble the 9 groups into the finished top and you'll be able to see the "Over - Under" effect. Be sure to lay all the blocks out ahead of time to avoid mistakes.

Note: the group from 4C is rotated in one position in the top and bottom center rows differently from it's rotation in the middle row on the left and right side.

I suggest assembling these the same way you did the units of 9, that is: put together a block of 4, then make 6 vertically, then add the strip of 3 vertical blocks to the right side.

Next Installment is Part 9:
You have finished the quilt top, but you may decide to add a border or borders. In Part 9 we'll consider ways to add borders - using fabric you have cut into strips earlier.
