How to Make a Square Quilt with only SQUARE'S, Part 2

Pin It
If you missed a few weeks ago, HERE's our start of the quilt.

Now that you have your 16 blocks finished it’s time to do some arranging. I lay mine out, 4 cross and 4 down. I used to lay them out on the floor, at one house I had a felt wall but with age I lay them out on my bed, I like the white so that nothing takes away from my pieces.

Now is the time to move them around, so that you like the placement.

Cut  40 (mine soft gray) – 2 1/2” x 6 1/2”

Piece the border piece between each quilt block, for each row

Inside borders.

Take one 2 1/2” x 2 1/2” Square,  add 2 1/2” x 6 1/2” keep doing this until your row looks like this.

Do this ROW as above 5 times, using different colored squares, making no row the same.

Piece the border to each row, and row the rows together.

When you finish all the rows you will have the center of the quilt.
