Applique-with-Organza Block Set

These are instructions on how to embroider the designs from the Applique-with-Organza Block Set.

The set contains 6 designs in the redwork technique, which can also be used for quilting, and 6 designs of applique-with-organza blocks.
The files with redwork designs are called "RWMotif", the files with applique called "Appl".

You will need

  • embroidery thread (either polyester or rayon),
  • light-weight cut-away stabilizer,
  • organza, precut it into 8" x 8" squares (for large designs), 10" x 10" (for the larger designs), 12" x 12" (for the largest designs),
  • base fabric,
  • applique fabric,
  • polyester craft felt for trapunto effect (optional),
  • sharp scissors.

There are 6 motifs in the set, all of them are embroidered in the same way.

Step One: Hoop the base fabric with light-weight cut-away stabilizer. Upload the files. Start the machine. The first color will embroider the outline of the design.

Step Two: On the right side, cover the outline with a piece of applique fabric. For trapunto effect, on the back side, cover the outline with a piece of craft felt (optional). Fasten the felt either with temporary adhesive or with pins. Pin the felt outside the embroidery area.

Start the machine. It will embroider the same outline over the fabric.

Take the block from the hoop and trim it to the needed size.

We made a tablerunner with the blocks. Organza creates a beautiful shimmering effect beautiful by candle- and sunlight.
You can read about how to sew the tablerunner on the project page.
