4. Sew the remaining four arcs to the other curved edge of each corner square, but sew only to the existing stitching.

5. Press the seam allowances open. Then press under the outer and inner edges of each oval.


Stitch the remaining arcs to the corner squares to the previous stitching line. Press under the inner and outer edges of the oval 1/4 inch.


The gentle curve presses easily without clipping.

6. Sew the ovals together so the squares alternate at the center.

7. Cut the base fabric 23 inches x 23 inches and find the center of this square by folding into quarters.


Fold the base fabric into quarters to find the center.
