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.
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 everyone! This is Marjorie from blue feather quilt studio, and I want to share a machine embroidery project using the GO! Alphabet die set that is fun, easy and one that you can personalize in as many ways as there are words. If you love word quilts, but not paper piecing, then the possibilities using the AccuQuilt GO! Alphabet and an embroidery machine will have you more than a little excited. This is so much fun that I have already made baby name quilts with the alphabet for my new twin grandchildren. And my head is bursting with ideas: what about a quilt that says “Just Quilt It” in the middle surrounded by sampler blocks, or a rag quilt with a name embroidered as one letter in each block. Here's one of the baby quilts I made with the letters and other AccuQuilt GO! shapes.
Machine embroidery applique is the perfect way to embellish holiday projects. It adds that extra glimmer and pizzazz that we all love and perfectly enhances wall hangings, table dressings, and other projects. I am making several of these Holiday Circles projects to be used as wall hangings and table runners for gifts and for my own home. You will see in this tutorial that it is so easy to do with a little bit of fabric and thread.
