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

Seasonal Trees Mini Table Runner
I made this Seasonal Trees Mini Table Runner to go onto a wooden bread box which has been in my family for many years. This delightful wood box used to hold bags of flour and even has a wood panel inside to store yeast blocks. Now this lovely box has it’s pride of place in my lounge and I use it as a small coffee table. It’s almost like having my own treasure chest in my lounge.
I wanted a mini table runner to go onto this lovely chest but I wanted the wood to show as well. The runner in this photo measures 24″ x 7″
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.
