Join the K/L strips on short ends to make one long strip. Press seams to one side. Cut the strip into two each 31/2" x 631/2" K, and 31/2 " x 511/2 " L border strips.
Sew the K borders to opposite long sides, and the L borders to the top and bottom of the pieced centre, referring to Figure 14. Press seams toward the borders.
Join the M/N strips on short ends to make one long strip. Press seams to one side. Cut the strip into two each 2" x 691/2 " M, and 2" x 541/2 " N border strips.
Sew the M borders to opposite long sides, and the N borders to the top and bottom of the pieced centre. Press seams toward the borders, referring again to Figure 14.
Sew the O border strips to opposite long sides, and the P border strips to the top and bottom of the pieced centre to complete the quilt top. Press seams toward O and P borders.
Sandwich batting between the pieced top and a prepared backing piece. Baste layers together. Hand- or machine-quilt as desired.
When quilting is complete, remove basting and trim batting and backing fabric even with raw edges of the pieced top.
Use eight 21/4" by fabric width co-ordinating strips to prepare binding. Stitch to the quilt front edges, matching raw edges, mitering corners and overlapping ends. Fold the binding to back side and stitch in place to finish the Midnight Paths quilt.
