  3. Join the turquoise/gold darts to the white/gold darts. See Diagram 3. Press the seams open flat to reduce the bulk.

  8. Quilt as desired.
  9. Make a fold 10cm along one long edge of each 35cm x 55cm backing piece, and press.
  10. Fold again, and press – this will create an edge with three layers, stitch along the inside fold.
