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, table cloths, and table runners.
