From Christmas Green (9900 14), cut:
{D} (1) 7” square

Applique supplies:
Paper, freezer paper, or tear-away embroidery stabilizer



Using scrap pieces or cut pieces 1.5” x 6.5”, sew together enough so that your block is at least 6.5x 6.5” (this is your own design - you can use a solid piece or tiny pieces or anything in between)



Print or draw sweater outline onto a piece of copy paper, freezer paper, or tear-away stabilizer.

Layer pieced block, foreground fabric, then sweater outline on top. Pin together so that fabric will not shift when sewing.

Sew along the outline with a short stitch (1.5-2 length).  Remove freezer paper/stabilizer.

Reinforce stitches (either use a straight stitch and go over a couple of times or use a decorative stitch.)
Trim away fabric from inside the sweater lines, leaving about ⅛-¼” excess fabric. This will fray as the quilt is used/washed, giving a “fuzzy” look. (If you don’t want the frayed look, use pinking shears.)

Trim excess fabric from back of the block.  Trim block to 6½” square unfinished size.
