Following the same steps as above, sew four blocks with large triangles cut from the background fabric for the corner blocks.






Adding to the units to the quilt

Arrange the blocks as shown and sew them into four rows of 8 blocks each.
The corner blocks are turned the opposite direction from the rest of the blocks.
Sew a corner block onto each end of two of the rows. Press the seams open.
Sew the rows of 8 blocks to opposite sides of the quilt, then sew the rows with the corner blocks.
Press the seams toward the sashing strips. The unit will be 30 1/2'' square.
Sew the 3'' x 30 1/2'' sashing strips to opposite sides of the quilt. Press toward the sashing.
Sew the 3'' x 35 1/2'' sashing strips to opposite sides of the quilt. Press toward the sashing.
