This “Bridge” block makes perfect patchwork blocks a reality. It is made using appliqué techniques with satin stitch finishing. There is some prep work done on your sewing machine before finishing off on your embroidery machine.
Enjoy accurate patchwork and piecing by using modern tools that are accessible to all sewers.
This 2023 series features blocks that are:
- Made in-the-hoop
- Accurate patchwork every time
- Beautiful appliqué with intricate decorative stitching
- Make a sampler quilt
You will no longer worry about block sizes and patchwork that doesn’t match up where it should. With machine embroidery piecing your seams match up every time and you have perfect triangles with y-seams that are made without difficulty.
What can I do with this block?
Make a quilt that is the envy of other quilters and enjoy the pleasure and satisfaction of creating a stunning patchwork and appliqué quilt. You can also use them for other projects like bags, motifs on clothing, and home decor items like oven hot pads, tablecloths, and table runners.
Use the block to make a tote bag: Four patches for a front and a back, two patches for the sides and base.
All available sizes are included in your download file immediately after payment. Bernina machines will read the EXP file type.
Finished size: 5×5″ (excluding seam allowance)

What you need
To make one block you will need:
- Tear-away stabilizer or wash-away stabilizer. I prefer tear-away for my patchwork blocks because wash-away stabilizer will distort when using a steam iron to press multiple blocks in a patchwork design.
- Two pieces of contrasting fabric measuring 7,5″ x 3,5″
- Fabric glue
- Scrap fabric for the appliqué
- Thread to match the fabric
- All the available file types are included in your download.
