Accuquilt GO Crazy Patch Hearts

It occurred to me that perhaps I could make a crumb block and then cut it with my Accuquilt GO die and have a crazy patch applique block. So — I did.  It was so easy.

I just put a few crumbs together,

ran them through the Accuquilt GO with the large heart die,

stitched a die line onto the background fabric with the embroidery machine,

glued the heart to the background with Elmer’s purple school glue stick,

put it back on the embroidery machine for the applique stitches,

removed the tearaway stabilizer and pressed

— and voila! really cute heart blocks!

My blog is about helping other quilters learn to use great tools in their quilting through what I can teach and through finding other bloggers who have good information. In addition, I am a mother and grandmother. Other hobbies include any other stitchery which makes me happy at the moment. I worked in clinical research for most of my career. I am now retired and enjoying every minute.

    1. Yes, it was hard for me not to do some stitching along the seamlines along with some embellishment. Once the machine embroidery is done, this would be a nice take-along project for the hand stitching.

    1. Well, I digitzed these just for this project, but can make them available on my web store for a minimal charge. That’s the easiest way to make them available.

  1. Oh my. Absolute beautiful. Might be me, but I’m not familiar with the term “crumb block”. I think I caught on, but this might be an opportunistic blog post/tutorial in the makings. Thanks for inspiring. I’m definitely going to start playing around with “crumb blocks”.


  2. Marjorie, love this. I am really enjoying seeing all the applique embroidery’s you have been creating. they all look wonderful
