Instructions:
1. From the jacquard fabric, cut 2-9” squares, 1-8” square, 2-10 1/2” squares and 1-10” square. Set aside the 10” and 10 1/2” squares, these will be used later for the backing. 2. Select the desired designs to use for the table topper. Designs FH107, FH114 and FH124 were used in the sample. Transfer the designs to the proper media for your machine following manufacturer’s instructions. 3. Hoop the 8” square fabric with stabilizer; load the design for the center block onto your machine and stitch. Remove from hoop and tear away the excess stabilizer. Repeat for the remaining two designs being used for the larger squares. Note: The designs in the sample were stitched diagonally on the squares. 4. Using the ruler and rotary cutter, trim the center block to 6 1/4” square and the larger outer blocks to 7 1/2” square, set aside. 5. Choose one of the fat quarters to use for the center square. From that fat quarter cut 22 1/2” x 6 1/4” strips and 2-2 1/2” x 10” strips. 6. Set the machine up for straight stitch sewing with a 1/4” seam. Stitch a 6 1/4” strip to the top and bottom of each block. Stitch a 10” strip to the left and right sides of each block. 7. Choose a different fat quarter to use for the outer squares. From that fat quarter cut 4-2” x 7 1/2” strips and 4-2” x 10 1/2” strips. 8. Stitch a 7 1/2” strip to the top and bottom of each block. Stitch a 10 1/2” strip the left and right sides of each block. 9. From the batting cut 2-10 1/2” squares and 1-10” square. 10. Using spray adhesive, attach batting to the wrong side of the embroidered squares. Place the backing fabric wrong side to batting on the back of each square. 11. To quilt the square you can either stitch in the ditch around the embroidered square or use a decorative stitch. A decorative stitch was used for the sample. When using a decorative stitch, the stitch will straddle the seam of the embroidered block and the border. 12. From the remaining 2 fat quarters, cut 2 1/2” strips for the binding. Use one color for the middle square and the last color for the outer squares. To determine the length needed for the binding measure all the way around the outside edge and add 6-8” for mitered corners and overlap at the end. Note: To create the continuous binding, join the strips with a diagonal seam. Trim the seam allowance to ¼”. 13. Fold the binding in half lengthwise, wrong sides together and press. Matching raw edges, pin binding around the edge on the top side of the square. Miter the corners and overlap the ends. Stitch using a 3/8” seam. 14. Fold the binding to the back of the square and stitch in place using a blind or whip stitch. 15. Placing the blocks at a diagonal, overlapping the corners. Use the buttons to join the squares together.
