Assemble and Sew

Sew all the pieces on the front panel with a zigzag stitch. Next, Cut the back panel in the same size as the front panel and with the right sides facing together, sew the four sides, leaving about 20″ hole so you can invert the quilt right side out. Flip it right side out and sew the hole closed. Next sew 1/4″ seam on all sides.
