    COMPLETING THE QUILT

              1.  Mark, layer, and quilt using Quilting Diagram, page 4, as a suggestion. Our quilt is hand quilted.
              2. Bind quilt as desired.

    GENERALS

    TEMPLATE CUTTING

    Our full-sized piecing template patterns have 2 lines — a solid cutting line and a dashed line showing the ¼" seam allowance.

              1.  To make a template from a pattern, use a permanent fine-point pen to carefully trace pattern onto template plastic, making sure to transfer all alignment and grain line markings. Cut out template along inner edge of drawn line. Check template against original pattern for accuracy.
              2. To use a template, place template on wrong side of fabric (unless otherwise indicated in project instructions), aligning grain line on template with straight grain of fabric. Use a sharp fabric-marking pencil to draw around template. Transfer all alignment marking to fabric. Cut out fabric piece using scissors or rotary cutting equipment.

    MAKING PILLOW FRONT

    Cut four 14" lengths from ribbon. Refer to photo and Diagram, page 3, to position ribbon lengths on pillow front; glue to secure. Use fabric marking pen to draw a ½" seam allowance along edges of pillow front. For each tie, use seam ripper to carefully open tie along center back seam; trim away lining and press tie flat. For hearts, use 8 ties and cut a 4" square from each.

    Cut a piece of web slightly smaller than each tie square. Follow manufacturer’s instructions to fuse web to wrong sides of squares. Trace and cut out Heart Pattern; use pattern to cut 1 heart from each tie square. Refer to diagram and center hearts in ribbon squares; fuse in place.

    Cut a 14" square of fabric and two 3" x 27" strips of fabric for boxing.

    APPLYING CORDING

    Cut cord in half. Cut two 1½" x 56" strips (pieced as necessary) from remaining ties. To apply cording to right side of pillow front, use one 1½" x 56" tie piece and 1 cord piece. Lay cord along center on one side of tie. Matching long edges, fold tie over cord. Use a zipper foot to machine baste along length of tie close to cord. Matching raw edges and starting 1" from end of cording, baste cording to right side of pillow front; clip seam allowances as needed. Open ends of cording and cut cord to fit exactly. Insert one end of cording fabric in the other; fold raw edge of top fabric ½" to wrong side and baste in place. Use remaining tie and cord pieces and repeat for pillow back.

    MAKING BOXING

    Match right sides and raw edges and use a ½" seam allowance to sew boxing fabric strips together along short edges to form a loop; press seam allowances open. Referring to Fig. 3, fold boxing piece in half and make ¼" clips into edges of fabric at each fold. Unfold boxing piece.

    Fig. 3 | Clip Fig. 3 | Clip
