**Quilt Assembly:**

Use the diagram below to assemble the quilt.

Quilt as desired and bind.

I think 3 yards of white and possibly the 2+ yards for backing is excessive.

Thank you Ann, I’ve corrected the fabric requirements. The backing has a 12″ overage, that’s 6″ extra on each side for quilting. You may wish to use less overage which would mean less yardage for backing. Thanks, Betsey

Awesome instructions !!

Is there a finished photo of the baby box quilt? Thanks
