Hi, Marjorie Busby of Blue Feather Quilt Studio, and I'm excited to show you my latest AccuQuilt machine embroidery project, Beach Party Banners and Garden Flags. This is something that had been floating around in my mind for quite a long time and the new appliqué die, GO! Sea Life Medley (55190), sparked the connection. Who doesn't love a little homemade garden decor?
Today’s tutorial uses the new GO! Carefree Alphabet Lowercase Set (2 die set) #55491 die and the free alphabet machine embroidery designs that can be downloaded from Accuquilt.com. This is not your typical pieced or embroidered quilt design and allows one to add their own personal design touch to the project. Besides the lowercase alphabet set, some additional designs were purchased from the Accuquilt.com website for the complete wall hanging.
This tutorial will show you how to use the GO! Spring Medley die and the free Spring Medley Embroidery Designs for appliqué to create beautiful embroidered quilt blocks. This quilt is made using the GO! QUBE Mix & Match 10” Block die set and the Uneven Nine Patch Block and the Louisiana Block from the free 72 block brochure from AccuQuilt. A free pattern is available for making the Spring Medley Baby Quilt, so this tutorial will focus on how to stitch the embroidery onto a quilt block.
Welcome to the GO! Bear’s Paw Block on Board® (BOB®). I made a variation of the Bear’s Paw block to use as a table runner. While I used red and white, my thoughts were of falling leaves. The single "paw" unit of the bear's paw looks a lot like a maple leaf.
