English Rose Garden QAUG Large Blocks

English Rose Garden QAUG Large Blocks Tutorial

English Rose Garden QAUG Large Blocks Tutorial

English Rose Garden QAUG Large Blocks are perfect to make a large quilt. The English Rose Garden Large Blocks are made by creating a fabric sand- wich, which is then marked to position 4 pieces of one design to make up the large block. I didn’t use any stabilizer for these blocks and the sandwich creates a thick enough fabric to em- broider on. The blocks are embroidered and quilted all in hoop. All that is needed to create these large blocks is a bit of alignment.
Follow this lesson to see just how easy it is.

This set contains 5×5, 6×6, 7×7 and 8×8 designs

You can create the following sized English Rose Garden QAUG Large Blocks (measurements are in inches)

From the 5×5 designs you can create 10×10 blocks

From the 6×6 designs you can create 12×12 blocks

From the 7×7 designs you can create 14×14 blocks

I used the
Seasonal Trees Designs found here for this project, but you can use quilt block designs that measure 5″x5″.  This project was really quick to make.
