This pattern includes digitized embroidery applique designs compatible with the Quiltworx Dinner Plate Dahlia. Foundation papers and applique sheets are sold separately.
The CD contains machine embroidery designs in the following formats: .art, .art60, .dst, .exp, .hus, .jef, .pes, .vip, and .vp3.
There are three methods to complete the embroidery for your dots: applique with decorative embroidery, applique with a satin stitch, and solid embroidery. (See front pattern cover for examples.)
The designs have been divided up so that they can be stitched out using a hoop with an embroidery field that is 150mm x 400mm (5.8” x 15.7”) - OR at least 200mm x 300mm (7.8” x 11.8”)
The quilt is divided into four quadrants. In each of the quadrants there is a Left Unit, a Corner Unit and a Right Unit. Each Unit requires two hoopings.
Full-sized layouts for each of the sections are included as PDFs (they are “tiled” and can be taped together)
SVG and PDF Cutting Files included. There are also instructions for preparing Applique circles using the Stitch-N-Peel Templates.
This pattern was not designed for the type of applique where you cut away the extra fabric. The templates are the actual applique size and after cutting out the pieces, you will place the pieces within stitched-out placement lines.
HOWEVER: You CAN use the cutaway method for your applique, but you will have to repeat the placement line after you place your fabric down and before you cut your fabric away. I do not include a second placement line or a tack down stitch in my designs.
