Using one Indian Star block and two Hour Glass blocks each, make two rows as shown.

Sew all four rows together, alternating between each row added.

From your inner border fabric, cut two strips 2" x 32½" and sew these to the sides of your quilt top. Then cut two strips 2" x 27½" and sew these to the top and bottom of your quilt top.

From your outer border fabric, cut two strips 5" x 35½", and sew these to the sides of your quilt top. Then cut two strips 5" x 36½", and sew these to the top and bottom of your quilt top.

Optional: Use the four remaining dark nickels as corner pieces for your outer border. To do this, cut your top and bottom strips 5" x 27½" and sew one nickel to each end of both strips before attaching to your quilt top.

Layer your quilt top with batting and backing, quilt as desired. Bind to finish.
