Instructions for stitching the blocks together to form a wall hanging

 

 

Stitch all the 16 blocks out

Trim fabric away from each of the 16 blocks with your scissors as close to the satin stitched edge as possible (HINT when cutting the fabric with your scissors always keep the fabric to your right, that way you will never cut the satin stitch edging)

Centre your backing fabric to be ready for you to place the first stitch out block with a + for placing the blocks

On the back of the No. 6 block spray glue, as seen in the photograph to the left.

Place No. 6 block on one side of the + As seen in the photograph below and stitch a zigzag stitch over the satin stitch border that is part of the block

Place No. 7 block on the other side of the + 

Place No. 10 block below No. 6

Place No. 11 block below No. 7

Glue and stitch all the other blocks in their right position

Place the decorative stitch border as seen in the photographs below
 
Stitch the small square border as seen in the photograph to the left.
Stitch all the 24 border squares around the decorative stitch border, as you can see in the photograph above.
