Instructions:

  1. Place your stabilizer on the wrong side of the G Background piece. Stitch your cute floral pumpkin using the embroidery file and your coordinating thread.
  2. Remove the fabric from the hoop and remove the stabilizer carefully from the back. Press well. Trim to 8 ½” x 8 ½”, making sure the design is centered in the square.
  3. Draw a diagonal line on the wrong side of 2 of the I background pieces. Place these two, right sides together with two B print pieces. Sew a ¼” seam on the left and right sides of the marked line. Cut down the marked line and press towards the darker fabric. Trim the four half square triangles to 4 ½’ x 4 ½”.
  4. Repeat with two more I background pieces and two C print pieces, to make four half square triangles. Trim the four half square triangles to 4 ½” x 4 ½”.
  5. Place an H background piece right sides together with an A print piece. Sew along the long side. Repeat to make three more sets for a total of four.
  6. Assemble the center of the block as shown.
  7. Draw a diagonal line on the wrong side of the F print pieces. Place the F pieces right sides together on each corner of the block, with the lines aligned as shown in Fig E. Sew on the marked line, trim ¼” away from the seam, and press open.
  8. Sew a J background piece on either side of an E print piece, along the long sides.
  9. Assemble the remainder of the top as shown.
  10. Layer together your quilt top, batting and backing. Quilt as desired. I used diagonal quilting, with different widths for the spaces between lines.
  11. Sew your binding strips together end to end. Press binding in half long-ways. Bind mini quilt as desired.
