When working on any foundation, and in particularly the foam, it will shrink up on you, so cut
it a little larger then your template. Look at your pattern it will tell you how much larger you need
to cut it. For those looking for the pattern, try your local quilt shop and if you are not near one you can buy it here https://www.etsy.com/ca/shop/coolcatsandquilts?ref=hdr_shop_menu
Lay your first strip down on the drawn line. Now follow Step 2 in your pattern.
Follow the instructions in the pattern to finish the 4 tops. When you have all tops completely covered, you can turn in over to the back and trim around the edges even with the foundation. This will make it easier to see when you use the freezer paper template to cut out the shapes. Follow Step 3 in the pattern. If you are doing the decorative stitching, do so now. I love to do some decorative stitching on them, gives you a chance to use all of those stitches you never touch!
Now follow Step 5. If you have never heard of under stitching before, it is a way to make the seam lay flatter, and will help you turn it under to press and then topstitch.
