At my daughter Chloe’s high school (can you believe my baby started high school???), the lunch lines are so long that she has been skipping lunch! She’s always starving by the time she gets home because she doesn’t want to carry a big lunch bag as well as her heavy backpack – poor girl!
I am so in love with the beautiful look of simple patchwork quilts with lots of squares. This is the perfect way to use up fabric scraps like I did, or you can make a beautifully coordinated quilt with pre-cut 2 1/2’’ square fabric pieces that come in mini-charm packs.
I’m also in love with the process. If you feel like quilt making is your escape from the world and sitting down to sew for a few hours makes your troubles fade away… this is the quilt for you!

I’ll also show you how to easily quilt this design without a quilting ruler at all, so don’t miss the video!

Love the block. I haven’t watched the video yet but am wondering if you can make the block on a regular machine. I don’t have an embroidery machine and would love to try it.
I have made several quilt blocks on my embroidery machine! I was even part of a swap group! I’ve got many blocks, but have yet to assemble them into a quilt.
Using embroidery designs means greater accuracy/points but I have to balance that with having to use a stabilizer like no show mesh. The stabilizer does add a bit of bulk and stiffness to the blocks. That’s fine for a wallhanging but I don’t like it for a quilt. I have used embroidery designs to quilt a block and that works well, especially when using metal hoops to quilt the sandwich. No need for stabilizer as the batting and two layers of fabric are enough.
Those blocks would make a cute table runner.
You never mentioned how to do the block using your embroidery machine??????
There is a link to the pattern above. When you buy it, it comes with a great tutorial.
