The first 5 installments in the series provide instructions for making the appliqué blocks and pieced units, with printed templates for completing the appliqué blocks with hand or machine appliqué. The final installment includes instructions for quilt assembly, quilting and finishing.

The GO! Heather Feather #2 die (#55088 – for the small and large hearts), the GO! Heather Feather Border die (#55414) and the GO! 2″ 3″ 5″ Circle die (#55012) can be used to cut all appliqué shapes.

Finish your quilt with greater ease by using the Splash of Color Design Collection with your embroidery machine to complete each appliqué block.

Each appliqué block can be finished in two ways:

  • Use the basic embroidery designs to add a gorgeous edge finishing stitch to your appliqué shapes and highlight the bold designs in the Transformation fabric.
  • Use the embroidered appliqué designs with solid fabrics to show off the gorgeous thread-work in the designs.

Purchase the Splash of Color Design Collection as a bundle, or purchase each block individually.
