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.
There’s a chill in the air and it’s time to start stitching for the holidays. The AccuQuilt GO! 12 Days of Winter Bliss pattern used with the GO! Winter Bliss Wall Hanging Machine Embroidery Set by Marjorie Busby makes a darling wall hanging or lap quilt for display during the winter season. And it stitches up beautifully using quick and easy AccuQuilt GO!® die cut shapes and machine appliqué using your embroidery machine or by stitching it with a blanket stitch on your sewing machine. This project can also be hand stitched using fusible raw edge shapes and a blanket stitch.
