You will want to trim down your previously embroidered or appliquéd blocks to 6-1/2” x 6-1/2”, centering the embroidery EXACTLY, and then follow the instructions on pages 10-11 of the instructions to join triangles to the corners of the blocks using a “stitch-and-flip” technique.

  • I downloaded the PDF for Part 3 but could not print it out. Is it protected? Sent it to OneNote to save.
    Any ideas why it wouldn’t print. I have Adobe Reader and don’t have problems with other pdf’s I receive.

  • Can you tell me the Brand of Red embroidery thread you used? Also if you happen to have the color number that would be so helpful. Thank you for such great support for the making of this quilt.

  • Trying to find out— I screwed up one of the embroidery triangles for Fabric D. I have 32” left after cutting everything in the cutting instructions. Are there more borders, bindings to cut later? Or, am I good to redo this block?
