Sew and Turn Applique Quilt Blocks
Sew and Turn Applique is the easiest way to create beautiful applique designs. The applique is soft
and puffy. Beautiful decorative stitching is used to hold the applique pieces in place. The block is then lined and quilted. Creating beautiful applique quilt as you go blocks with a traditional look, hasn’t been easier.
This lesson is the basic lesson to be used for all the Sew and Turn Applique Quilt Blocks.
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.
