1. Layer the quilt top, batting, and backing; baste.
2. Quilt as desired. Using matching thread, designer Pat Sloan machine-quilted a wavy design through the red print foundation strip and an allover design in the black print strip. She outline-stitched around the appliqué pieces and machine-quilted a primitive star in the center of each star appliqué.
3. Use the green print 2-1⁄2x42" strips to bind the quilt. Pat used green thread to machine-blanket-stitch the binding of her finished quilt.
