Instructions

Embroidery:

  1. Layer the 8”x8” Fabric A on top of stabilizer and hoop centering both layers.
  2. Press the Embroidery Icon then press Exclusive then press Freehand.
  3. Stitch out 2 of Design 003 and 2 of Design 004 creating a total of 4 units; using the Madeira Red Rayon Embroidery Thread.
  4. Using a 6.5” x 6.5” square ruler center the design under the ruler and trim excess fabric leaving you a 6.5” x 6.5” embroidered square. Repeat for all 4 of the units.

Piecing:

  1. Take 2 each of Fabric B and C 2.5” x 2.5” and place on the embroidered unit’s corners.
  2. Sew Diagonally Corner to Corner of the 2.5” x 2.5” square creating a half square triangle in each of the 4 corners of the embroidered block.
  3. Trim ¼” from seam press open. Repeat for remaining blocks.
  4. With the remaining 2.5” squares from Fabrics A B and C sew them together creating a unit that measures 6.5” x 2.5”. Make 1 unit.
  5. Sew the 4.5” x 2.5” rectangles together from Fabrics A B and C along the 4.5” length resulting in a unit that measures 4.5” x 6.5”. Make 1 unit.
  6. Sew the 12.5” x 2.5” strips together from Fabrics A B and C along the 12.5” length resulting in a unit that measures 12.5” x 6.5”. Make 2 units.
  7. Sew the 18.5” x 2.5” strips together from Fabrics A B and C along the 18.5” length resulting in a unit that measures 18.5” x 6.5”. Make 2 units.
  8. Sew the 26.5” x 2.5” strips together from Fabrics A B and C along the 26.5” length resulting in a unit that measures 26.5” x 6.5”. Make 1 unit.
  9. Sew the 28.5” x 2.5” strips together from Fabrics A B and C along the 28.5” length resulting in a unit that measures 28.5” x 6.5”. Make 1 unit.

Next we are going to create 4 large units.

  1. Sew 12.5” x 6.5” to the top of one of the embroidered 6.5” x 6.5” and then sew 18.5” x 6.5” unit to the bottom of embroidered unit. This unit should measure 36.5” x 6.5”. Make 1 unit (A).
  2. Sew 26.5” x 6.5” to the top of one of the embroidered 6.5” x 6.5” and then sew 4.5” x 6.5” unit to the bottom of embroidered unit. This unit should measure 36.5” x 6.5”. Make 1 unit (B).
  3. Sew 2.5” x 6.5” to the top of one of the embroidered 6.5” x 6.5” and then sew 28.5” x 6.5” unit to the bottom of embroidered unit. This unit should measure 36.5” x 6.5”. Make 1 unit (C).
  4. Sew 18.5” x 6.5” to the top of one of the embroidered 6.5” x 6.5” and then sew 12.5” x 6.5” unit to the bottom of embroidered unit. This unit should measure 36.5” x 6.5”. Make 1 unit (D).
