Blocks to applique on your long arm machine.
Applique, Traditional Blocks
Traditional quilt blocks to sew on your quilting system! While these blocks were originally created for the Statler Stitcher, files in all supported formats are included. Some blocks include an optional background fill. Patterns may be enlarged or reduced in size to fit your quilt. The leaves, flowers stems etc. of these traditional blocks can also be mixed and matched to create new designs.
Your download will include two *.pdf files, describing 1) a diagram and tips for stitching that particular block, and 2) general instructions for applique on the Statler Stitcher based on Anne's class. If you don't own a Statler, you will need to adapt the instructions to your system.
A bonus for Statler owners: these downloads include a Creative Studio *.proj file. Just open the project... all the stitching files are already loaded, with quilt groups set up. Move the designs into place and you're ready to stitch!
Applique, Hawaiian Tribute Series
Hawaiian-style blocks suitable for quilting or applique.
The quilt at the right, "Hawaiian Tribute" was pieced with the Blank Slate pattern, available here in the Store, and completely appliqued on my computerized longarm quilting machine (a Statler Stitcher.)
Blocks are available individually, or in the Hawaiian Tribute Set. This quilt won a blue ribbon at the 2011 Washington County, MN Fair.
Traditional Pieced Blocks, for Quilting or Applique
Patterns in this category are based on traditional pieced blocks...but are continuous line designs that can be used for quilting designs, or for applique.
Try them on home dec items such as potholders or towels... or in a miniature quilt.
