“Chinese Lantern” is a patchwork block made using your embroidery machine. It uses appliqué, flip-and-sew as well as cross-stitch embroidery.
What can I do with the “Chinese Lantern” block?
All the blocks in the 52 blocks series can be stitched together to create a sampler quilt. You can also use them for other projects like bags, motifs on clothing, and home decor items.
Instructions and sizes
It is only available for the 5×7″ hoop, the final block measures 5×5″. Not all the designs in this series will work well as a larger format, so for consistency and to maintain the dainty aspect of some of the blocks, I’m keeping it to 5×5″.
All the available stitch files are provided in a single download. Remember that Bernina machines will read the EXP file type, no fiddling with conversions!
