Part 5 – The big reveal

You have worked hard to get this far.  Don't stop now.  It is time for the final steps and the big reveal.  Are you ready?

Our quilt is set on point please be sure to refer to the diagrams or it can become confusing.  Referring to the diagrams will also aid in the proper placement of Blocks, Corner Triangles and Setting triangles.  It is very important to place the blocks as they are shown in the diagram or the big reveal may have a kink in it.  Hopefully, putting the quilt mystery together will not be too confusing for you.  If you need help ask.
