This is Marjorie Busby from bluefeatherquiltstudio.com, and I want to share an updated machine embroidery project using the new GO! Classic 2" Alphabet Uppercase Set Die (55559). All the letters are on one die and it is fun and easy to personalize any project in as many ways as you like using words. Just look around and you will see word quilts everywhere and there is no better way to create a word quilt than to use an alphabet die which makes your cuts effortless and accurate.
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.
It's Marjorie Busby from bluefeatherquiltstudio.com with a tutorial featuring the Serendipity Specialty Qube Die Set by designer Edyta Sitar. It is so much fun stitching the machine embroidery designs, and in particular, the basket from this set. What fun to make a basket quilt with machine embroidery applique, and there are stars and hearts and flowers that can be stitched onto the baskets.
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.
