Hi! It’s Steph from Steph Jacobson Designs, and I’m here to share a quick and easy Halloween project using the new GO! Classic 2” Alphabet Uppercase Set (#55559). When you have one of AccuQuilt’s alphabet dies, it’s a great excuse to personalize everything! With Halloween on its way, I decided to make a fun personalized trick-or-treat bag for my adorable nephew, Hunter.
Not only does quilter Marjorie Busby have awesome tips on her embroidery techniques, but she also has some great advice on healthy eating habits thanks to her background in clinical nutrition.
This is Marjorie Busby from bluefeatherquiltstudio.com, and I love, love, love the GO! QUBE. My first reaction was, “Why would I need this when I already have almost every die that AccuQuilt makes?” The answer was obvious before the package was hardly opened. With the QUBE, everything needed is at your fingertips. Cutting the exact number of pieces for each block is a breeze. It is like the BOB dies, except that there are an infinite number of blocks that can be made using this one set of dies. And best of all, the 4 x 4 patch blocks can be made in any size: I chose the 9" QUBE and love that I can make 4 x 4 patch blocks in that size. It opens up a whole new world of cutting for me. The more time I spend with it, the more I love it for both piecing and embroidery.
Hi, it's Marjorie Busby from bluefeatherquiltstudio.com here, with some quick ideas for holiday stitching. Making in the hoop machine embroidery ornaments is a great way to give a personalized gift and can be used as ornaments as well as gift tags. They stitch up quickly and use relatively small pieces of fabric. Stitching them is similar to making fabric postcards, but with a different shape and a holiday theme. Last month I posted about using the Holiday Circles 2 Machine Embroidery Designs to make a table topper. This month, the same set is used to make holiday ornaments.
