PIECING BLOCKS A-G

Piecing Blocks A and C **Use a ¼” seam allowance for all seams.**

To piece blocks A and C, first sew one green print rectangle to the left side of the red print rectangle.  Then sew the remaining green print rectangle to the right side of the red print rectangle.  Make sure the directionality of your prints is correct if needed.  Press seams.  Next sew the large white rectangle to the top of the unit.  Press.

 

                              Step 1                                       Step 2                                   Step 3

 

Piecing Block B

To piece block B, first sew one green print rectangle to the left side of the red print rectangle.  Then sew the remaining green print rectangle to the right side of the red print rectangle.  Make sure the directionality of your prints is correct if needed.  Press seams. Then sew the small white rectangles to the left and right sides of the red/green unit.  Next sew the large white rectangle to the top of the unit.  Press.

 

                       Step 1                                      Step 2                                  Step 3

 

Piecing Blocks D, E, F, G

To piece the remaining blocks, first sew one green print rectangle to the left side of the red print rectangle.  Then sew the remaining green print rectangle to the right side of the red print rectangle.  Make sure the directionality of your prints is correct if needed.  Press seams. Then sew the middle white rectangle to the top of the red/green unit.  Press.  Next sew the two large white rectangles to the left and right sides of the unit.  Press.

ADDING APPLIQUE TO BLOCKS

1.  Print out the included pdf file containing the ribbon appliqué shapes.  The large ribbon shape is used for Blocks A and B.  The small ribbon shape is used for the remaining blocks.

2.  Place the 6” x 12” fusible web rectangle, bumpy side down, on top of the wrong side of the red trees fabric.  Fuse the fusible web to the fabric.  Make sure to read the manufacturer’s instructions prior to beginning for appropriate heat settings and length of time to press.

 

 

3.  Trace the bow template shapes directly onto the paper side of the web-fused fabric.  We will need 20 small bow shapes and 6 large bow shapes.

 

 

4.  Cut out the shapes, and peel the paper backing off.

 

 

5.  Fuse the bows (sticky or wrong side down) to the right side of blocks A-G, making sure to center the two appliqué shapes over the center Red Trees print ribbon.  Refer to finish photos as needed.  Again, the large ribbon shape is used for Blocks A and B.  The small ribbon shape is used for the remaining blocks.

6.  Zigzag or blanket stitch around the shapes to secure the appliqué. 

 

PIECING APPLIQUE ROWS  

Piece the top, middle, and bottom appliqué rows referring to Figure 1 for lettered block placements.

PIECING QUILT TOP IN ROWS

1.  Next assemble the horizontal white and pink stripe strips for the quilt top.  Take the white 8 ½” x 42” strip and the white 8 ½” x 13” and sew along the width to yield a strip 8 ½” x 55”.  Make 2.

2.  Take the pink stripe 3 ½” x 42” strip and the pink strip 3 ½” x 13” and sew along the width to yield a strip 3 ½” x 55”.  Make 6.

3.  Layout the horizontal strips for the quilt top as shown in Figure 1.  Sew together the rows starting with the top two rows and progressively working your way down to the bottom until the quilt top is complete.

 

PREPARE THE BACKING

 The backing fabric and batting should be slightly larger than the quilt top.

 1.  Cut the batting to approximately 60” wide x 70” long.

 2.  Cut the backing fabric into two 60” x 42” pieces.  Sew together along the 60” inch side to make backing 60” x 84”.

 

3.  Baste all 3 layers together and quilt as desired. I wanted a playful design based off of the candy theme in the fabric.  My long arm quilter was able to come up with this fabulous custom candy motif with candy canes, lollipops, gum drops and sugar cookies.  Isn’t it wonderful?

4.  Cut 6 binding strips 2 ¼”- 2 ½” wide.  This will make continuous double-fold binding with mitered corners.  Bind the edges to finish the quilt!!
