#6: Trim 1/4" from stitching. Press open.
#7: Pin A3 squares on other side of A4 rectangles. Stitch, trim 1/4" and press open. (Make sure diagonals are going in same direction.)
#8: Pin and stitch A2 and A5 squares together. Press open.
#9: Pin and stitch A2/A5 units to the diagonal units. Press open.
#10: Layout squares, making sure that a navy square is at each corner. (The Block should now be together!)
#11: Take 2 top pieces, place them right-sides together over 2 bottom pieces. Pin, sew and press.
#12. Pin the 2 halves, right sides together, making sure to nest the seams. Stitch and press.
