- Cut the remaining two Hawaiian Motif Flowers in half on the diagonal.
- Place Hawaiian Motif Flowers on the background and heat fuse in in place with iron as shown in the photo.
- Straight stitch along the edge of each Hawaiian Motif Flower.
- Layer the backing, batting and quilt top. Quilt by hand or machine, as desired.
- Sew binding strips together to form one long strip. Fold wrong sides together lengthwise and press.
- With a 1/4" seam, sew the raw edges of the binding to the edges of the right side of the quilt. Turn the folded edge of the binding to the back side of the quilt and stitch in place by hand, mitering the corners.
