Step 5: Join the rows to make the quilt top
Take a cornerstone row and sew it to the top your A row. As you get to each seam make sure the underneath seam is pointing in the opposite direction, if necessary stop about 1/2" before the seam, make sure the needle is down (in the fabric) and then lift the presser foot and use your finger or a small tool to sweep the seam in the correct direction. Then put the presser foot down again before you continue sewing.
Repeat with your rows B to G. You will have one cornerstone row left over - this goes onto the bottom of row G.
Now sew your rows together in the correct order until they are all assembled into one piece. Now press all your seams - you can alternate the direction or have them all pointing the same way - it is entirely your choice.
Lay your completed quilt top out and admire it - you have completed the first stage! Well done!
