Join this unit to the side of the previous J and again to a new J. Repeat this sequence till row is complete. See diagram for assembly. Make four border rows using this se-

Attach the longer borders containing the L squares to the top and bottom of the quilt. Backing & Binding: Cut 2 sections of backing 96" x 45".Cut a third strip 96" x 12".
