2. Following manufacturer’s instructions, center and press a fusible-web A circle onto wrong side of Four-Patch unit; let cool. Cut out fabric circle on drawn line. Peel off paper backing to make an A circle appliqué.

3. Repeat steps 1 and 2 to make 16 A circle appliqués total.

4. Fold a brown tone-on-tone 10" square in half horizontally and vertically; slightly press each fold to make a foundation square with guidelines.

5. Referring to Diagram 2, center an A circle appliqué atop foundation square, aligning seam lines with guidelines. Center a B circle appliqué atop A circle. Fuse circles in place following manufacturer’s directions. 

6. Using green thread, machine-zigzag-stitch around A and B circles to make an appliquéd block. Trim block to 9-1⁄2" square including seam allowances.
