  1. Cut a square 25 ½” x 25 ½” for the quilt center.
  2. Outside border fabrics are directional, so cut 2 strips 6 ½” x width of fabric and then trim to 6 ½”x 38”.  These will be the top and bottom borders.
  3. From the remainder of the fabric, cut 2 strips lengthwise – 6 ½”x 25 ½”.  These will be outside border sides. 
  4. Cut 4 strips 2 ½”x width of fabric for binding. 
  5. Cut 2 squares of solids for the block backgrounds – 10” x 20”. 
  6. Cut 1” strips of Heat’N Bond Lite and press on the outside edges of the wrong sides. 


  1. Sew side borders to the center square.  Then sew on top and bottom borders. 
  2. Trace all patterns for fusible appliqué onto the paper side of the Heat’N Bond Lite. Press Heat'N Bond to the wrong side of the desired fabrics and cut out. 
  3. Wavy cut the outside edges of the solid block background pieces, then remove paper before placement.  Peel paper from cut out designs and place on background blocks per quilt photos.
  4. Sandwich top, batting & backing and quilt as desired.  Bind & enjoy!!
