Assemble and Appliqué Quilt Center
1. Referring to Diagram 7, lay out blocks and tan tone-on-tone 5-1/2" square in pairs. Pin trailing ends of stem appliqués out of the way. Sew together pieces in each pair; press seams in opposite directions. Join pairs to make quilt center. Press seam in one direction. The quilt center should be 10-1/2" square including seam allowances.
2. Referring to Quilt Assembly Diagram, arrange stem appliqués on quilt center, removing basting stitches as needed to shape stems. Arrange light turquoise floral A and B leaf appliqués along 9-1/2"-long stem. Fuse in place.
3. Working from bottom layer to top, use blue thread and a narrow machine-zigzag or blind-hem stitch to sew around each stem and leaf appliqué.
