How to Piece our Quilt Block in an Embroidery Hoop

Here’s an overview of our techniques. There are more details shown in our Exclusive Quick Quilting in the Hoop: Winter Snowflakes Embroidery Collection Book. Each quilt block design is available in three sizes: The larger the block, the large the embroidery hoop size needed:

  • 5″ block requires an 5″ x 5″ hoop or larger
  • 6″ block requires a 6″ x 6″ hoop or larger
  • 8″ block requires a 8″ x 8″ hoop or larger

  • Print an optional template from collection files for the chosen design. On printed template, notice the different sections of the block and numbers within. These numbers indicate the piecing sequence.

  • Select and Prepare Fabrics for Square Within a Square Blocks with Snowflake accents: The most dramatic results are achieved by selecting assorted fabric of light, medium, and dark shades.
  • – Snow White Shades— center block squares.
    – Cobalt Blue Shades — inner block triangles.
    – Peacock Aqua Shades — outer block triangles.

  • Prepare all fabrics using spray starch or a starch alternative. This step preshrinks, removes wrinkles, and makes fabric crisp to allow for nice sharp folds.

Timesaving Sewing Tips from Nancy ZiemanPreshrink fabrics by steaming and pressing and steaming and pressing a second time. Stabilize fabrics for sewing by pressing and starching fabrics with June Tailor’s Quilter’s Starch Savvy — press and starch, press and starch.

  • Cut Fabrics for Square Within a Square Blocks: Note: 5″ fabric squares work perfectly with all three sizes of the Quick Quilting in the Hoop Block’s inner and outer block triangles. Size of block determines if 5″ fabric squares are cut in half (1/2-square triangles) or in quarters (1/4-square triangles).
  • Using a rotary cutterruler, and mat, cut Block fabrics by cutting one 5″ wide crosswise strips for each of the three fabric colors.

  • Sub-cut 5″ wide crosswise strips into 5″ fabric squares.

  • For 5″ blocks, cut 5″ fabric squares point to point diagonally in both directions creating 1/4-square triangles for both inner and outer block triangles:

  • Cut fabric squares for block center squares (Section 1) according to block size: For 5″ blocks, cut 3-1/4″ fabric squares:

  • Import and select the Quick Quilting in the Hoop Winter Snowflake Block design.
  • Use a neutral thread color that works well with fabrics for the piecing sequence. For embroidering numbered “Map stitching”, choose a slightly darker thread so that you can see the stitching on the stabilizer — the numbered “Map stitching” will be hidden within the seams of the block. (We are using black thread for easy viewing.)
