Now to sew it together...


The layout.

When you are working with a diagonal setting you will 
sew your quilt top together in the diagonal rows. 


Work on half of your quilt at a time. 


 Sew the middle seam together last.  



Notice the room around the edges for border or binding because of the larger setting triangles.  This is a good method for a modern quilt when you want to bind this edge. 





 Happy 150th Canada!




 The completed quilt top is 50" x 82". 








Trouble Shooting 

I ran into this little snag when piecing my quilt together.  I was just going along, minding my own business, when I spotted inconvenient dog ears!  Oh dang.

I needed to do a bit of un-sewing to be able to put my sashing rows on properly.   

Of course, not sewing these points down to begin with is the best alternative :)
But, if you are like me and stuff happens, here is the solution.

In the top-centre of the photo below notice how the top left point of the triangle is in the way for the sashing row to be sewn on.

Undo this point about 1", sew your sashing in place, then sew this point back down.
