So right now you have three different blocks.
You need to measure your blocks to see if you need to trim any. The only one I had to do any major trimming was the first one but I knew that when I made it. Mine measured 14 1/4 inches wide and 10 inches high. Yours are going to be slightly larger because I had you cut 2 1/2 inch strips or use a jelly roll. If you find a block way small, iron it again. You can sometimes get up to 1/2" back just be pressing again. You really just want to trim off the bare minimum. If you have a block that is really small or really big check your seams. Cutting large hunks of fabric off these blocks will kill the over all effect.
Layout is pretty simple, each row is just one of each block in the order that we sewed them. It's also the order that I show above. The critical thing here is making sure your seams are pressed the right way. You will have 4 rows. Rows 1 and 3 all of the seams need to be pressed to the right. Rows 2 and 4 need to be pressed to the left. We have to be able to lock our seams together with this quilt.
Remember locking our seams means that little bump that forms on the back of the block locks with the one on the other block. This quilt will give it away if you don't get them locked.

I hadn't planned on this quilt having borders. There is no rule about this.
OHH I almost forgot to tell you the name of the quilt that we made. It's called a bargello. I didn't want to tell what it was because I didn't want to overwhelm you. It looks so difficult but now you know that you can make one.
