From the double bows, to the hair, the leaf, the tulips and I even used multi-colored threads instead of my normal invisible thread when I applied the shapes to the block.
Today’s notes about this block are pretty short and sweet as I’ve put everything in the pdf file that you need to create this block. However, I left a few things to place on the site as well.
Let’s get to the nitty and the gritty, you want the download.. 🙂 Yes?
The artwork for the Little Treasures BOM is from Graphics and Graphics
All of my patterns are created in Electric Quilt Software
and digitized in Bernina Embroidery Plus Software
Available now on Craftsy for 2.99.
The pdf file will include everything you need to create the block. Some of the tutorials are also on the website such as the How To’s for the machine embroidery, doing the actual dimensional effects in your hoop and additional tips and tricks.
Here are a few images of the creation of the block.
If you use the dimensional techniques for the hair, they will need to be outlined via machine or hand after you turn them inside out.
This is the hooping for the dress and it’s outline.
The face, mushroom and double bows are shown here.
The dimensional leaf is shown here along with the mushroom. The grass in particular is the reason for this image. When your doing the grass to turn under your 1/4-inch, only part of the grass is turned under and it’s important that you know which to turn under and which not. The pdf file shows these parts.
Because I love doing the faces, I just want to note that if you create the dimensional bows whether you do the one set or the dual set, the face and hair shape in particular are in the dimensional templates part of the pdf. Do not use the normal templates for these because they are designed for non-dimensional bows.
This shows the altered hair and face parts with the hair going on in the background to the block.
