Machine Stitches Block // Skill Builder BOM 2014

This months block for Skill Builder BOM 2014 was so much fun to make! It is called the Machine Stitches block it features an Asterisk stitch, Cross stitch and Vine stitch. This block measures 14" x 21" and each of those Asterisk blocks are only 3". Everything is so tiny which is challenging, but totally fun.


This years Skill Builder has really been fantastic. Quilter's and guilds from all over the world have joined in. So far we have gone over the basics of machine quilting, making the Ruler block, making the Thread Spools block and now making the Machine Stitches block.

I love the format of a Block of the Month and may just have to keep this up every year! Remember you can join anytime at the Sewing Room.
