3. Stitch down the batting - this is done automatically by your embroidery machine at the push of a button.

blog 2 We recommend that after this step that you trim the batting so no batting is in the seam, making the blocks easier to join later. blog 3 Remove the hoop from your machine and trim the batting about 1-2mm from the stitching. LEAVE YOUR WORK IN THE HOOP WHILE YOU DO THIS .

4. The next step stitches the block fabric down onto the batting and stabiliser. Once again this is done automatically at the press of a button.

5. Now the FUN part begins!

This is the part where the applique and decorative stitching is done
  • machine will stitch a placement line for the applique
  • lay applique fabric over placement line making sure the line is covered.
  • stitch down the applique fabric
  • trim the applique fabric as close as you can to the stitching line
  • machine will then stitch all the quilting, satin stitching and decorative stitching
The above steps are all done automatically by the machine. The machine will automatically stop when there is something you need to do like change thread colour or add more applique.You just follow along with the instructions that we provide.

After you have made the all the quilt blocks you make the border and corner blocks in exactly the same way.

6. Assembly of the quilt

Now that you have made all the quilt blocks on your embroidery machine it is now time to assemble your quilt. We also provide all the instructions you need to sew the blocks together, add the binding and the backing with stitching in the ditch.
