Com­plet­ing the Spool Blocks

1. Sew a D tri­an­gle to an E tri­an­gle to make a D-E unit as shown in Fig­ure 1; press seam to­ward D. Re­peat to make 36 D-E units.

2. To com­plete one Spool block, sew a D-E unit to op­po­site ends of C to make a C row as shown in Fig­ure 2; press seams to­ward C. Re­peat to make two C rows.

3. Sew B to two op­po­site sides of A to make the cen­ter row as shown in Fig­ure 3; press seams to­ward B.

4. Sew a C row to op­po­site sides of the cen­ter row to com­plete one Spool block re­fer­ring to the block draw­ing; press seams to­ward the cen­ter row.

5. Re­peat steps 2–4 to com­plete nine Spool blocks.

Com­plet­ing the Pin­cush­ion Blocks

1. Trace the pin­cush­ion shape given on page 120 onto the pa­per side of the fusible web four times, leav­ing a 1/2" space be­tween shapes; cut out shapes, leav­ing a mar­gin around each one.

2. Fuse shapes to the wrong side of fab­rics as di­rected on pieces for color; cut out shapes on traced lines. Re­move pa­per back­ing.

3. Fold and crease each I square to mark the hor­i­zon­tal and ver­ti­cal cen­ters.

4. Cen­ter and fuse a pin­cush­ion mo­tif on each I square, lay­er­ing pieces in nu­mer­i­cal or­der as marked on pat­terns.

5. Ma­chine blan­ket-stitch around each shape us­ing thread to match fab­rics to com­plete the Pin­cush­ion blocks.

Com­plet­ing the Top

1. Ar­range and join the Spool blocks in three rows of three blocks each; ro­tate ev­ery other block 90 de­grees so some spools ap­pear to be on their sides as shown in Place­ment Di­a­gram. Press seams in ad­ja­cent rows in op­po­site di­rec­tions.

2. Join the rows to com­plete the pieced cen­ter; press seams in one di­rec­tion.

3. Sew an F strip to op­po­site sides and G strips to the top and bot­tom of the pieced cen­ter; press seams to­ward F and G strips.

4. Cut the rick­rack into four equal lengths. Ar­range a piece in a gen­tle curve along the cen­ter of each H strip re­fer­ring to the Place­ment Di­a­gram; tack in place us­ing a fab­ric glue stick. Stitch each piece of rick­rack in place down the cen­ter us­ing match­ing thread. Trim ex­cess at each end of each strip.

5. Sew an H strip to op­po­site sides of the pieced cen­ter; press seams to­ward H strips.

6. Sew a Pin­cush­ion block to each end of each re­main­ing H strip, keep­ing the blocks upright in the same di­rec­tion re­fer­ring to the Place­ment Di­a­gram; press seams to­ward blocks.

7. Sew a block/H strip to the top and bot­tom of the pieced cen­ter, keep­ing Pin­cush­ion blocks upright; press seams to­ward the block/H strips to com­plete the top.

Com­plet­ing the Quilt

1. Fin­ish your quilt fol­low­ing the Quilt­ing Ba­sics on page 124.

2. Quilt as de­sired.

3. Us­ing black thread, stitch three sets of long lines on each pin­cush­ion to sim­u­late pins re­fer­ring to the pat­tern for po­si­tion­ing sug­ges­tions.

4. Bind re­fer­ring to Quilt­ing Ba­sics on page 124.

5. To make a yo-yo, turn un­der 1⁄8" all around the edges of a yo-yo cir­cle; be­gin gath­er­ing stitches close to the fold us­ing a dou­bled length of

match­ing thread as shown in Fig­ure 4. Sew all around the cir­cle, fin­ger­press­ing the turned edges as you sew. Pull the stitches tightly to gather and close the cir­cle, again re­fer­ring to Fig­ure 4; smooth and flat­ten the cir­cle with the hole in the cen­ter. Knot and clip the thread to com­plete one yo-yo, again re­fer­ring to Fig­ure 4. Re­peat to make 12 yo-yos.

6. Fol­low man­u­fac­turer’s in­struc­tions to cover the 12 but­ton kits with yel­low tonal.

7. Ar­range and pin three yo-yos on each H bor­der strip—two on the in­side edge of the rick­rack and one on the out­side edge of the rick­rack re­fer­ring to the Place­ment Di­a­gram for po­si­tion­ing.

8. Sew a yel­low cov­ered but­ton in the cen­ter of each yo-yo, at­tach­ing the yo-yo to the quilt at the same time. Re­move pins.

9. Sew a black but­ton to the top of each sim­u­lated pin on the pin­cush­ion ap­pliqué to fin­ish.
