Mark the horizontal and vertical center of each 11″ square of Kraft-Tex using a chalk marker.
While second design is still in hoop and attached to machine, retrieve last design created in step 5 (80294-75b). Using the Pinpoint Placement option on the machine, touch below the stem on flower (to the right, if the design has been rotated to fit the hoop).
Use the Multifunction knobs (Stitch Width and Stitch Length knobs) to move the hoop until the needle is over the same stitch on the design in the hoop. Touch the Set icon. Close the Pinpoint Placement tool.
Note – When a design is opened, it automatically centers in the hoop. This design should stitch to the left side of the square in the same place it stitched in the first two designs.
Hoop another piece of StabilStick following Steps 2 and 3 to center last Kraft-Tex square in the hoop. Stitch last design that was positioned in Step 8. Remove from hoop and trim stabilizer to size of Kraft-Tex square.
Trim the other piece to 36” x 13”. Then cut out the inner 10” squares as shown in the diagram. Cutting the squares from the inside areas creates frames for the Kraft-Tex blocks.
Layer backing, batting and top together. Use a 505 spray to hold layers together if desired. Using a decorative sewing stitch, topstitch around the blocks. Work from the center square out. Trim away the excess batting and backing.
Edge stitch around outside edge of wall-hanging to finish. Hang and enjoy, or use it as as an inspirational table runner!
