Hot and Spicy Block - Quilt as You Go with Joel Dewberry Fabric

Modern Quilt Block on Vintage Brother Sewing Machine

I intend to use this block as the front of a bag. What kind of bag - I have no idea yet. The fabrics are from Joel Dewberry, and I think there is an orphan strip from a Spring Zing Batiks strip pack in there. I used a scrap of fusible batting and some scrap solid fabric in silver for the border. The center is simply stitched in the ditch and the border is quilted with straight lines.  I am finding that my vintage Brother sewing tank machine loves Coats Dual Duty thread, which is not surprising, but she hates Superior Threads "Magnifico" which is unusual!  The Brother Innovis machine loves all of  the Superior Threads I've used so far, so I'll stick with that winning combination as well. I did not use a walking foot.

Modern Quilt Block on Vintage Brother Sewing Machine This is a super-easy and fun block to piece using the "quilt as you go" or QAYG method. I like a quick rewarding project with punch sometimes!  If you are interested in the QAYG method check out the tutorial below:

Hi Mayra! Glad you liked it! I didn't use a pattern, but I can point you in the direction of some good tutorials that show you how to do it without a pattern. The video I just posted above gives an excellent step by step denonstration that will probably answer most if not all of your questions!

HI Susan, the block looks really neat and specially good for using scraps, do you have a pattern for this one?
