The Easter Morning Quilt Block Pattern is a beautiful design that incorporates several different techniques and elements, including patchwork, applique, and embroidery. Follow these steps to create your own version of this lovely block.
- Assorted fabric scraps in pastel colors
- 1/4 yard of white or cream fabric for the background
- Fusible webbing
- Embroidery floss in coordinating colors
- Embroidery needle
- Sewing machine
- Rotary cutter and mat
Step 1: Cut your fabric pieces
Cut your fabric scraps into squares and rectangles in varying sizes. Cut the white or cream fabric for the background into a 10 1/2 inch square.
Step 2: Arrange the fabric pieces
Lay out your fabric pieces on the background fabric to create a pleasing design. Play around with the placement until you are happy with the overall look. You can use a design wall or lay the pieces out on a flat surface.
Step 3: Applique the eggs
Cut egg shapes out of your pastel-colored fabric scraps. Using fusible webbing, attach the eggs to the background fabric. You can either machine stitch around the edges of the eggs, or hand-stitch them in place.
Step 4: Embroider the details
Using embroidery floss in coordinating colors, add details to the eggs. You can embroider lines, dots, or any other designs you like. This step is where you can really make the block your own and add your own personal touch.
Step 5: Sew the pieces together
Once you are happy with the placement of the fabric pieces and the embroidery, it's time to sew everything together. Using a 1/4 inch seam allowance, sew the pieces together in rows, and then sew the rows together to create the completed block.
Step 6: Press the block
Press the block with an iron to set the seams and give it a polished look.
Congratulations! You have completed your Easter Morning Quilt Block. Repeat the steps above to create additional blocks for a quilt or use the block as a standalone decoration. Happy quilting!
