Block 63 The Icing on the Cake

img_1269A simple applique design from The Splendid Sampler. I decided on the needle turn method for this one.

Here’s how I quilted it using my ruler presser foot:

  • Stitched around the edge of each of the applique pieces.
  • Stitched straight lines like a paper muffin cup in the white section using the foot as a measuring guide for consistent lines.
  • Echo stitched around the cupcake using the foot as a measuring guide and creating somewhat diagonal lines to the edges of the block.
  • Stitch the border design like the other blocks.

The echoing around the applique really makes the shape stand out.

Until Next Time!
