Part 2 Alyssa Grey's baby clothes quilt

Now it's time to put the quilt top together!

At the end of Part 1, I had stacks of block pieces ready to sew. I didn't take any photos of the in-progress block piecing work but I have some from putting together the quilt top.

I squared up the finished blocks to ensure each was 12.5" and then I laid them out. It took a few hours of moving blocks around to decide on the final layout. I took photos and auditioned blocks in different spots. I ended up naming each block and then created an excel workbook to keep track of the final quilt top layout.

Next each block was labeled with its applicable column/row location within the quilt top's design...

I didn't mention this in Part 1 but I had also cut the many 2.5" wide strips needed for the white sashing in the quilt top.
