Install couching foot or free-motion quilting foot. Install Aurifil transparent thread (MT1000) in the top and thread to match yarn in the bobbin. Drop the feed dogs and prepare your machine for free motion.
Thread yard threw presser foot and start stitching, trace around the outside of the letter. The yarn will be caught by the stitches as you go, just like magic. Add a dab of Fabric Fuse Liquid Adhesive at the cut ends of yarn to eliminate it’s tenancy to fray.
Return machine to straight stitch settings, install zipper foot and use a matching thread on top and bottom. Baste pom trim around outside edge of throw top with pom pointing in towards the center.
With right sides facing pin front and back of throw together and sew together leaving 8-10 inch opening to turn. Turn right side out and hand stitch opening closed.

Locate repeating patterns or equal placements on the quilt and pin these points. This one was the bottom of some cars, Stitch back and forth 1/2 inch at each marked location. A walking foot is recommended this will keep layers from bunching or sliding.
TIP: For ease of maneuvering this throw on your machine roll excess throw up as you stitch these little sections.
