Step 8 – Stitch the units together into the 4 pieced border sections needed. Press the seams between the units open.

Step 9 – Set two border sections aside. With the remining two borders, add a Unit N from month 9 to each end of the border section as shown.

Step 10 – Press the seams open. Set the final two borders aside to use next month to finish your quilt top.
