  4. Use Sulky 12 wt. Cotton to applique using a machine blanket stitch set at the longest stitch length.
  5. Piece the sections together using a 1/4" seam allowance.
  6. Add the leaf print sashing and border strips.
  7. Use the blanket stitch to apply the rest of the appliques as shown on the finished quilts.
  8. Layer the quilt, i.e., back, batting and top.
  9. Spray baste the layers together using Sulky KK 2000 Temporary Spray Adhesive.
  10. Quilt using Sulky 12 wt. Cotton Thread in your favorite method.
  11. Add the fishing line. Carol used a 12 wt. cotton and a crochet chain stitch to create the line. A line could also be created by twisting several strands of Sulky 12 wt. Cotton together and couching them down.
  12. Make the fly. Around a piece of cardboard about 2" wide (business card size), wind 3 or 4 colors of Sulky 12 wt. Cotton 13-15 times. Thread a hand needle with one of the colors and slide it under and around one edge of the wound Cotton. Tie in a knot. Cut the other edge. Holding the tied end of the Cotton thread, tightly wrap andother one of the 12 wt. colors around it for about 1/4". Thread a hand needle with the end of the wrapping thread and pull it under the 1/4" of wrapped thread to secure the tail. Trim to desired length. You can also wrap a small feather in with the Cotton Thread or add it with glue.
  13. Add the hand-made fly to the end of the lure. This one was made with Sulky 12 wt. Cotton by Kenny Genawese.
  14. Add binding.
