† After the body of your quilt top is finished, please measure horizontally and vertically through the center of your quilt. If

Trim the selvages from all border strips. Sew all strips together end to end to make a long strip. Repeat for Borders 2 & 3.

Cutting out the Hearts & Diamonds Blocks
At the end of these directions are three different options for constructing one of the Hearts & Diamonds Blocks
- rotary cutting, templates, and foundation pattern - all generated from Electric Quilt 5

Foundation Pattern Notes: The entire pattern does not fit on one page, because this is a 12½” x 12½” unfinished
block on 8½” x 11” paper. Before you cut out the foundation patterns, line up the two pages on a light box or in front of
a window. Use the long and short dashed lines as your guide and tape the two pages together to get the full pattern.

                    5412-01                                                           5413-05
                    Cut 9 “A” templates.                                              Cut 9 “A” templates.
                    Cut 18 “B” templates.                                             Cut 18 “B” templates.

Sewing the Hearts & Diamonds Blocks




         Step 1

                                                                Step 3
                                                                                                  Finished Block
                                Step 2
Cutting out the Appliqué Heart Blocks
At the end of these directions are the template and block printouts for one of the Appliqué Heart Blocks generated
from Electric Quilt 5. Use the template printout to cut out your appliqué heart. Use the block prinout as your place-
ment chart to put the appliqué pattern in the desired position on the background square.

Notes:
1. The entire heart template does not fit on one page, because this is a 12½” x 12½” unfinished block on 8½” x
11” paper. Before you cut out the template, line up the two pages on a light box or in front of a window. Use the
long and short dashed lines as your guide and tape the two pages together to get the full pattern.

2. If you are fusing your appliqué heart, use the solid line of the heart as your cutting line. If you need seam-allow-
ance, use the outer dashed line of the heart as your cutting line.

3. To get the complete placement chart, line up the two pages of the Block Printout on a light box or in front of a
window. Use the long and short dashed lines as your guide and tape the two pages together. Once taped, place this
pattern behind your fabric to put the heart in the correct position.


                    5415-04
                    Cut 4 squares 12½” x 12½” .

                                                                12 1/2”

                                                                  9 3/8”
Cutting out the Side Triangles
                                                                                                   18 1/8”
Cut 2 squares 18-1/8” x 18-1/8”. Cut along both
