1. Get enough blocks to make 13″ x 17″ mini quilt top. In our case, we opted to go exactly 12″ x 16″ since our V Blocks measured up exactly.

2. Cut a piece of quilting batting and a piece of backing fabric about an inch or so bigger than quilt top. Layer quilt top right side up, batting, and then backing (backing is right side down).

4. Quilt to your preference and then trim to 13″ x 17″.
In this case, we trimmed to 12″ x 16″ to get a tighter pillow fit.
