Applique Flower Blocks: Set for a Quilt

These are instructions on how to embroider and make blocks with the designs from the Applique Flower Blocks Set.
The designs are available for large (5" x 7") and mega (6" x 10") hoops.
The finished size of the blocks with the 5" x 7" embroidery is a little over 10".
The finished size of the blocks with the 6" x 10" embroidery is a little over 12".
All designs have a blanket stitch finish.

Large Hoop:
Size: 129x129mm (5" x 5")
Stitches: 7500
Colors/Stops: 7
Mega Hoop:
Size: 149x149mm (6" x 6")
Stitches: 86000
Colors/Stops: 7

All blocks are embroidered and sewn in the same way. You will need base fabric, fabric for the applique, light-weight stabilizer, embroidery threads and temporary fabric adhesive in a stick.

Step One: Hoop the base fabric stabilized with the stabilizer needed for your project. We used light-weight cut-away stabilizer.

Upload the file into your machine. Start embroidering. The machine will embroider an outline of the shape and stop.

Step Two: Place a very small amount of the fabric glue inside the shape. Cover the shape with a piece of fabric, press a little with the tips of your fingure so that the applique fabric adheres to the base and does not shift during the next step. Start the machine.
The machine will embroider the same shape over the applique fabric and stop.

Step Three: Take the hoop from the machine. With a pair of sharp scissors cut away the fabric around the shape as close to the stitches as possilbe. Return the hoop to the machine.

Step Four: If the design has more than one shape, repeat steps 1 through 3. Thus, to continue with this block, return the hoop to the machine and embroider the next shape:

Place a very small amount of the fabric glue inside the shape. Cover it with a piece of applique fabric. Start the machine.

The machine will embroider the same shape over the applique fabric and stop.

Take the hoop from the machine. With a pair of sharp scissors cut away the fabric around the shape as close to the stitches as possible. Return the hoop to the machine.

Repeat Steps 1-3 for the last shape in this design:

Step Five: Return the hoop to the machine and let it finish the raw edges. Change threads when needed. The designs have a blanket-stitch finish. We recommend to use cotton threads for the finish.

Blocks Assembly

To make a block, you will need to embroider each design four times.
When you have all 4 parts embroidered, take one part at a time, place it on a cutting mat, align your ruler along the embroidered straight lines and cut.

When you have trimmed all four parts this way, align them as shown:

First sew the two upper blocks together, then the two lower blocks together. Seam allowance is 1/4". Press the seams open.

Then sew the upper and the lower strips together. Press the seam open.
Trim the block to the size you need.

Happy Embroidering!

We made a very simple quilt with the blocks. You can read about the quilt on the project page.
