Everything Baby by Lunch Box Quilts

I have a new granddaughter due in the next couple of weeks. Yesterday was the Baby Shower, so now I can share what I made for Samantha. Have you ever machine appliqued? It is pretty cool. This pattern is by Lunch Box Quilts.

It came out so cute. Finished size is 36″ by 50″.

I used a cut away stabilizer and sprayed some 505 temporary adhesive on the stabilizer. Then I centered the background fabric on the hoop. My machine has a basting stitch, so I basted down the background fabric.

The typical sequence for embroidery applique is first the placement stitch. Place your chosen fabric over the placement stitch, being sure it covers all the stitches

Then the cutting stitch.

Using very sharp-pointed scissors I trimmed off the excess fabric following the cutting stitch.

Then the satin stitch.

This stitch sequence is followed for every piece of fabric you add.

I can’t wait to meet my new granddaughter!
