We had so much fun last year that we are going to continue our Go! Qube Block Party for another year! Toward the end of last year, we introduced using machine embroidery applique designs in addition to cutting the shapes on the Accuquilt dies. This was very popular with many of our class members. Starting in November we will be working on the Christmas Train/Pillow/Table Runner. The applique blocks can be finished using an embroidery design (from the Accuquilt website) or using your regular sewing machine and your choice of a blanket stitch, satin stich, zig-zag or any other decorative stitch of your choice.
