For this project we created place mats and napkins. As you can see from the pictures we used just the apple designs for one of them and the pumpkin designs for the other. The napkins are embroidered with the small stitched version of the designs. When we planned this Harvest Quilt collection we decided to include some of finishing touches of quilting techniques right in the embroidery designs themselves! We made four different types of block designs with five different embroidery design themes. The themes are perfect for fall sewing projects: acorn, pumpkin, apple, oak and maple leaf. Each design is made in all four-block styles. Each block is offered in two sizes and the embroidery designs are also included separately in two sizes. Every block incorporates an embroidery technique and a quilt technique. Here is more information about the blocks:
1.Checkerboard block with stitched embroidery design. This block uses the crazy quilt applique technique to apply five different fabrics. The first four are a checkerboard pattern with a fifth square centered. A beautifully detailed, stitched design is then embroidered in the center of this final square.
2.Stippeled block and applique embroidery designThis block contains a standard applique design that is surrounded by hand digitized stippling for a truly hand crafted effect.
3. Striped block with running stitch design. This block also uses the crazy quilt technique to apply five different fabrics in strips. Running stitch designs in a continuous border style are then stitched on, several of the strips to complete the look.
4. Homespun applique design with echo quilting Homespun applique designs are appliques that are finished with a hand digitized blanket stitch instead of a satin stitch. For an authentic hand made look, use felt for your applique pieces. Echo quilting surrounds the design to complete the block.
