  1. Make two copies of letter Q


  2. Remember that the printed pattern is a mirror image of the design. You will be placing your fabric on the unprinted side and sewing on the printed side of the letter pattern. Read Foundation Piecing Basics Vol 1 for general paper piecing instructions.


  3. Main Fabric:
    • Cut a strip 3 " x 25" for 2M, 3M, 4M, & 9M

  8. Continue adding 4M and 5B. Then add the entire already pieced section with 6, 7, and 8. Pressing between each step.
