Quilting/Seam Guide (attaches to the back of the presser foot)*

Recommended Tool

Pre-Class Prep

Fuse the OESD Fusible Woven to the wrong side of the pillow front. It should fit inside the hemmed edges.

Cut 5 pieces of Stable Stick for the fabric pieces, 4” x 7” each. Peel the paper from the Stable Stick and adhere the stabilizer to the wrong side of each piece of applique fabric for the trees.

If you print the pattern pieces, make sure your printer is set to “actual size”. It should not be set to “fit to page”. If you are unsure about printing them correctly, I will have printed pattern pieces in class for your use.
