Appliqué Center Block

1. Fold light pink dot 21"-square appliqué foundation in half diagonally twice. Lightly finger-press folds to create appliqué placement guidelines; unfold.

2. Referring to Quilt Assembly Diagram, arrange pattern pieces A–F on appliqué foundation; baste in place.

3. Using thread that matches appliqué shapes and working from bottom layer to top, machine-appliqué pieces to make the quilt center.

4. Soak quilt center in cold water to remove glue. Machine-dry with dry towel to help absorb excess water. Trim foundation fabric behind appliqués, leaving 1/4" seam allowances. Peel away freezer paper and discard. Press from wrong side and trim to 20-1/2" square including seam allowances.
