Fuse Cotton Fabrics
Fuse the cotton fabrics with fusible web, following the directions that came with the fusible web. Let the fabrics cool.
Remove and Save Release Paper
Remove the release paper (attached to the fusible web) from the fabrics and save the paper in whole sheets. Note: Release paper can be reused multiple times.
Cut Out Fabric
Center the batting on top of the backing fabric to make the quilt sandwich. Cut out an 8-by-16-inch rectangle from the medium rainbow fabric for the sky. Cut out a 7-by-16-inch rectangle from the red/orange section of the rich rainbow fabric for the ground.
