When you finish making each row you will be ready to arrange the rows into your top.
The rows 5 and 4 are turned upside down. When you lay out your rows you will see a definite on-point setting.
Now you can decide if you want to add the generic borders or if you would like to do another round of 9" blocks. The blocks will be more of the Units you have already made. They will form another on-point perimeter.
The larger quilt installment with the fabric amounts will have to wait until I return from the guild meeting tomorrow. I have had 3 family emergencies the last ten days which have prevented me from devoting time to the mystery.
You want to highlight your work. This is a pizazz moment.
It may be a small area but it can do a lot for the quilt.
When I sew the strips to the opposite ends of the quilt top I pin! I pin each end of the strip to the top. Then I pin in the middle. Then I lay it out on a flat surface and see if the strip is running short with the top having too much fabric for the strip. If there is too much fabric in the top to fit the strip, find the center of each section of the top and the center of each section of the strip. I pin these centers together. Attach the border strip to the top with the top on the bottom. The feed dogs help ease the fabric in.
