Four Patch Blocks Tutorial

Several months ago I made a video showing my method for making four patch blocks quickly and easily using the Accuquilt GO cutter. I call this technique “cut-sew-cut” and it makes easy work of four patch blocks. I have a quilt pattern coming up this week using the Sunbonnet Sue embroidery blocks and the pattern uses four patch blocks in the corners of a nine patch block. Thus, I am re-running this video for you as a review. Of all the videos I have done, this is one of the best ways to use the Accuquilt GO cutter as a tool in your studio. Enjoy!

Ta Da! Sunbonnet Sue Makes an Appearance

August was busy around here with visitors and a couple of day trips of our own. And, in the meantime, my embroidery machine and I were working on my new Sunbonnet Sue designs. I haven’t finished all of the thread charts and other documentation, but have posted them in my store as “coming soon” and hope to have them ready for sale by the weekend.

Here are some preview pictures of three of the designs. The set also includes Sunbonnets with applique stitch, raw edge applique with a zigzag stitch, and others. I have also designed a nice little quilt with these Sunbonnets and will have instructions for it included with the set.  I’ll tell you more about the quilt tomorrow.
