Block 56 At Home Anywhere

img_1248

A tiny house to live simply in. I find this shed roof style tiny home very appealing. I tried yet another kind of applique to construct this block from The Splendid SamplerLori Holt over at Bee in My Bonnet has a tutorial on using lightweight non-fusible interfacing so I figured why not give it a try. You can hand or machine stitch the applique pieces, and I decided on machine stitching this time. The machine stitching became the quilting. I love doing everything in one step. This method of applique I think works best with pieces that aren’t too tiny, like the patterns Lori Holt has at her website. It is a nice way to have a finished edge instead of the raw edge you get when you use the fusible materials to applique.

Here’s how I quilted it using my free motion foot:

  • Stitched on the applique pieces
  • Stitched a door knob
  • Stitch the border design like the other blocks.
