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.
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 applique 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.
