Diagonal Joy Quilt Sew-Along:  ASSEMBLY

Welcome back!  This is it!  Time to put your Block A and Block B into rows for the quilt top assembly.

(The Just Two Charm Pack Quilt is required to participate.  The book is available HERE.)

Follow the "Quilt Top Assembly" sewing instructions in your Just Two Charm Pack Quilts book for the Diagonal Joy Quilt.

At the end of last week, you should have a stack of Block A and a stack of Block B.

Now it's time to put them together into rows for your quilt top.

I laid my blocks out first to see if there was any colors I wanted to move around.  Then, I picked up one row at a time and stitched them together.

Numbered pins work great so you can keep track of which block goes where. 

I pressed my seams open to keep everything lined up correctly and laying nice and flat.

I added a small inner border using my light grey background and then a final wide border using my accent floral.

I am excited to show you the finished quilt next week!
