From black pump­kin print:

• Cut 1 (67/ 8" by fab­ric width) strip. Sub­cut strip into 5 (67/ 8") E1 squares. From cream leaf print: • Cut 1 (67/ 8" by fab­ric width) strip.

Sub­cut strip into 3 (67/ 8") E2 squares.

From cream pump­kin print:

• Cut 2 (33/ 8" by fab­ric width) strips.

Sub­cut strips into 20 (33/ 8") B squares. • Cut 1 (67/ 8" by fab­ric width) strip.

Sub­cut strip into 3 (67/ 8") E3 squares.

From or­ange leaf print:

• Cut 3 (67/ 8" by fab­ric width) strips.

Sub­cut strips into 11 (67/ 8") F squares. • Cut 6 (21/4" by fab­ric width) bind­ing strips.

From black metal­lic specks:

• Cut 2 (41/2" by fab­ric width) strips.

Sub­cut strips into 16 (41/2") C squares. • Cut 2 (27/ 8" by fab­ric width) strips. Sub­cut strips into 20 (27/ 8") squares. Cut each square in half on 1 di­ag­o­nal to make 40 D tri­an­gles. • Cut 3 (41/4" by fab­ric width) strips.

COM­PLET­ING THE PIE BLOCKS

1. Draw a di­ag­o­nal line from cor­ner to cor­ner on the wrong side of each F and G square.

2. Re­fer­ring to Fig­ure 1, place an F square right sides to­gether with an E1 square and stitch 1/4" on both sides of the marked line. Cut apart on the marked line to make two E1-F units; press. Re­peat to make a to­tal of 10 E1-F units.

3. Re­peat step 2 with F, E2 and E3 squares to make six each E2-F and E3-F units as shown in Fig­ure 2. Set aside one each E2-F and E3-F unit for an­other project.

4. Re­fer­ring to Fig­ure 3, place a G square on one seamed cor­ner of an E1-F unit and stitch on the marked line. Trim seam al­lowance to 1/4" and press G to the right side to com­plete one E1 quar­ter unit. Re­peat to make a to­tal of 10 units. 5. Re­peat step 4 to make five each E2 and E3 quar­ter units as shown in Fig­ure 4.

6. To com­plete one Pie block, se­lect one each E2 and E3 quar­ter unit and two E1 quar­ter units.

7. Sew an E1 quar­ter unit to an E2 quar­ter unit and an E1 quar­ter to an E3 quar­ter unit to make two block halves as shown in Fig­ure 5; press seams open to re­duce bulk.

8. Join the two block halves, care­fully match­ing cen­ter seams, to com­plete one Pie block re­fer­ring to the block draw­ing; press seam open.

9. Re­peat steps 6–8 to com­plete a to­tal of five Pie blocks.

COM­PLET­ING THE CAT & MOUSE BLOCKS

1. Re­fer­ring to Fig­ure 6, sew an A tri­an­gle to op­po­site sides of a B square; press. Sew A tri­an­gles to the re­main­ing sides of B to com­plete one A-B unit. Re­peat to make a to­tal of 4 A-B units.

2. Re­peat step 1 with one B square and one A and three D tri­an­gles to make eight dark A-B-D units re­fer­ring to Fig­ure 7.

3. Re­peat step 1 with one B square and two each A and D tri­an­gles to make eight light A-B-D units as shown in Fig­ure 8.

4. To com­plete one Cat & Mouse block, se­lect one A-B unit, two each light and dark A-B-D units, and four C squares.

5. Sew a C square to op­po­site sides of the A-B unit to make the cen­ter row as shown in Fig­ure 9; press.

6. Sew a C square be­tween two dark A-B-D units to make the top row as shown in Fig­ure 10; press. Re­peat with two light A-B-D units to make the bot­tom row, again re­fer­ring to Fig­ure 10.

7. Sew the cen­ter row be­tween the top and bot­tom rows to com­plete one Cat & Mouse block as shown Fig­ure 11; press. 8. Re­peat steps 4–7 to com­plete a to­tal of four Cat & Mouse blocks.

COM­PLET­ING THE QUILT

Re­fer to Fig­ure 12 and the Place­ment Diagram as needed for po­si­tion­ing of blocks, rows and bor­ders.

1. Join one Cat & Mouse block with two Pie blocks and two H strips to make row 1; press. Re­peat to make row 3.

2. Join one Pie block with two Cat & Mouse blocks and two H strips to make row 2; press.

3. Join three H strips with two I squares to make a sashing row; press. Re­peat to make a sec­ond sashing row.

4. Join rows 1, 2 and 3 with the sashing rows to com­plete the pieced cen­ter; press.

5. Join the J/K strips on the short ends to make one long strip. To avoid a seam close to the end of the J strips, trim off 20" from one end and sew to the op­po­site end. Sub­cut the strip into two each 4½" x 40½" J strips and 4½" x 48½" K strips.

6. Sew the J strips to op­po­site sides and K strips to the top and bot­tom of the pieced cen­ter; press.

7. Ar­range and fuse the pre­pared stem shapes at the cen­ter seam at the top of each Pie block.

8. Us­ing a ma­chine blan­ket stitch, stitch around each stem shape to se­cure and com­plete the quilt top.

9. Cre­ate a quilt sand­wich re­fer­ring to Quilt­ing Ba­sics on page 94. 10. Quilt as de­sired. 11. Bind edges re­fer­ring to Quilt­ing Ba­sics on page 94 to fin­ish.
