Hi, it's Marjorie Busby today from blue feather quilt studio to share a tutorial for a Fun Flower quilt that is quilted in the hoop. First, let me say that the Fun Flower die is my all-time favorite. It is so quick and easy to stitch with machine embroidery and it's just the right size to use in so many different ways. It fits perfectly on a 6" square like the center of an uneven nine patch from the 12" Qube. And it is used on lovely Carolina blue place mats at my house to honor our alma mater, the University of North Carolina. Fun flowers transform a plain alternating block on a quilt to a quick, easy and beautiful joining block. I have even used it to cover a permanent magic marker stain on the side front of a little girl's t-shirt. The following pictures show a couple of examples of the ways I like to use Fun Flowers.
