Appliqué Blocks

1.    On one yellow print 11-3⁄4×15-1⁄2" rectangle, arrange one each of matching bright green print A, B, and C tree pieces, and brown print D trunk (Tree 1 Appliqué Placement Diagram). Add five matching bright print E ornaments and a bright print F star. Fuse all pieces in place.

2.    Using machine-quilting threads that match each appliqué, machine-satin-stitch around all appliqué edges, working from the bottom layer to the top, to complete a Tree 1 appliqué block.

3.    Repeat steps 1 and 2 to make three total of Tree 1 appliqué blocks. (For a touch of whimsy, designer Linda Lum DeBono added six bright print E ornaments to one of the blocks.)

4.    Referring to Tree 2 Appliqué Placement Diagram, arrange a bright green print G tree and a brown print D trunk on a remaining yellow print 11-3⁄4×15-1⁄2" rectangle. Arrange one each of matching bright print H, I, and J garland pieces and a bright print K star. Fuse all pieces in place. Repeat Step 2 to stitch around appliqué edges, completing a Tree 2 appliqué block.

5.    Repeat Step 4 to make three total of Tree 2 appliqué blocks.

6.    Referring to Tree 3 Appliqué Placement Diagram, arrange a bright green print L tree and a brown print M trunk on a remaining yellow print 11-3⁄4×15-1⁄2" rectangle. Add five matching bright print N ornaments and a bright print O star. Fuse all pieces in place. Repeat Step 2 to stitch around appliqué edges, completing a Tree 3 appliqué block.

7.    Repeat Step 6 to make three total of Tree 3 appliqué blocks.
