Let’s Get Started:
Start by cutting out the Hopscotch squares, background squares, and rectangles and border frames for each quilt block.
First, sew the shorter border strips on either side of the blocks and press seams to the border strips
Next, sew the longer strips on either end of the block and press seams towards the border strip. Your blocks should measure 12 1/2″ x 12 1/2″ square.
For the curved top piece. Cut the fabric from the template as show and layout and press flat.
Fold each curved piece in half and press the center seam. This will help line up the curved-pieced block as you pin it in place.
Next, pin at the center crease and both edges. Then fill in the curve with lots of pins. Sew your 1/4″ seam allowance and press seams. Repeat this process for the 2nd curved piece.
Using the FREE templates provided above, Follow the directions on the back of the Lite Sewable HeatnBond, trace the numbers and bug shapes on the paper side. Note, shapes are already reversed. Using a warm iron, press each drawn shape of HeatnBond onto the wrong side of the variety of colored fabrics for both the numbers and the bug shapes. Using a sharp pair of scissors, cut on the traced line on each shape.
Peel off the paper backing and position on the prepared quilt blocks as shown.
Again, using your warm iron, press the applique shape onto the quilt block to secure in place. Using a straight or zig-zag stitch and a coordinating thread color, sew around the entire perimeter of each shape.
Repeat the raw-edge applique process for each of the Bugs and their parts.
Layout all the prepared and appliqued quilt blocks and sew together as shown. Press seams downward.
Your quilt top is completed!
Layer with the 48″ x 96″ piece of StitchnSew Sew in Fleece High Loft and backing and quilt as desired. Bind the edges with your favorite binding method.
