Mystery last part

So now are the last steps of putting this quilt together. So go get your Fabric #1 ( Background) squares they were I believe 2" in size plus get those forty strips you cut out of the Fabric #4 ( Border fabric). They were 2" x 11 7/8". You will make five of what is show in the picture. Begin with a square and end with a square.
Then get your 16 blocks and assemble the middle just like the picture. :-) I'm not sure how to tell you how to do this except I sewed the remaining strips from Fabric #4 ( 2" x 11 7/8') on the sides of the blocks as shown then I put the above strips on the blocks from top to bottom.
Now you'll want to get your fabric #4 that you cut earlier the two was 53 1/2" and you want to attach them to two opposite sides of the quilt center. Pin and ease as needed. Press the seam allowances toward the borders. Then take the remaining Fabric #4 the two sized 60" long and attach them to the remaining two sides of the quilt. Press seam allowances toward the border.

Okay now we are doing the pieced borders next to the last step.
This is a preview of what the finished quilt will look like, notice the different fabrics ect. I'll post my finished quilt tomorrow. This Ohio weather is hard on my arm with r.s.d so it has taken me longer then usually to complete. I can't wait to see your ladies quilts. I hope you all had fun doing this. next time I'm doing a smaller one.
Many Blessing to you all~~~

Hi Carolyn,
I wanted to email you and let you know I've enjoyed reading your blogs this evening and to also thank you for becoming a follower of my blog. We seem to have a lot in common! I see you enjoy retreats, I would love to have you and some of your friends as guests sometime, but know we live a long way away from each other! I also enjoy traditional quilts, especially antique ones, and try to design mine with that in mind! I would love to visit more with you! Please sign me up for your drawing!
