    You need background fabric, coordinating fabric, freezer paper, glue (washable, I use both glue stick and Elmer's School Glue), paper scissors and fabric scissors, pencil, ruler, and something to mark a circle.

    Step 1: Prepare freezer paper square. Draw the circle in the center. Make sure

    I am still trying to decide if I should cover the arms which are plastic or just finish off the bottom and sides of seat. ??? Thoughts or comments always appreciated.

    With Blue as my top thread and Yellow in the Bobbin, I did a large meander around the poinsettia shapes on the bottom sashing. I made sure I didnt come to close or connect with the side seams.

    Once finshed I flip it over to admire the resulting design on the front sashing.

    Once I am sure my sashing lines up accurately. I then measured the width from the edge of one seam of batting to the opposite.
    In this case it turned out to be an even 4 inches.

    I cut a 4 x 9 1/4 piece of batting giving my self a little more than necessary on the length to be trimmed later.

    I'm finished... I have to say WOW... I'm feeling really great about this quilt.

    It was a wonderful learning experience from beginning to end. My corners are still not show quality according to Sharon Schamber's tutorials. But I have to say they are better than any corners I have made before. The stitching all around on my binding is excellent. I don't know that I could have really done any better. I think its my best hand stitching work ever.
