Print out a copy of the overall layout so you'll know where each block goes.

Assemble the blocks into rows as shown below. NOTE: Some of the colors in the photos below are different from the wall hanging shown at the top of this page. They were taken of a second wall hanging. Assembly is the same.

Row One: Water block 1 (the row consists of only this one block, so this row is not shown)

Row Two: Water block 2, fish 1, water block 3

Shown at top of page as gold fish with red stripes.

Finish The Wallhanging

Stitch all rows together.
Measure your wallhanging. It should measure 16.5" x 44.5". To finish my wallhanging, I added two rows of borders. You can finish your wallhanging in your own design. These are instructions for my borders: Cut two strips light green fabric, each measuring 16.5" x 2.5"
Cut two strips light green fabric, each measuring 44.5" x 2.5"
Cut 8 squares light green fabric, each measuring 2.5" x 2.5"
Cut 4 squares dark green fabric, each measuring 2.5" x 2.5"
Cut 4 squares rust fabric, each measuring 2.5" x 2.5"
Cut 30 3" squares from two colors (total 60 squares) - they will be come the triangles in the outer border

1.  Stitch the long light green borders to the two long sides of the wall hanging.

2.  Create the four border squares (each made up of the small 2.5" x 2.5" squares)
3.  Create long borders made from triangle squares.
Cut each of the 60 3" squares on the diagonal.

Stitch one light triangle to one dark triangle. Square down to 2.5" squares. Stitch 22 of these squares together, creating a 2.5" x 44.5" strip. Repeat. NOTE: You can arrange these squares in any pattern you wish. I arranged mine so that the dark fabric pointed down and toward the center of the wall hanging.

Stitch the triangle border strips to the outer edge of the long green border on your wall hanging.
4.  Create short borders from triangle squares and light green fabric.
Stitch 8 triangle squares together, creating a strip 2.5" x 16.5". Repeat. Stitch each triangle border to a light green border.
5.  Stitch the border square blocks to the two short end borders.
6. Finish your wall hanging top.
Stitch the short borders to the top and bottom of your wall hanging.
