I made this quilt with the instructions, It came out wonderful, I did use a commercial embroidery machine with a large hoop, I have used several of the designs by themselves on several other projects , All the designs were wonderfully digitized and run excellent on a machine.

The design itself is beautiful but if you try this on your own it is really difficult. My friend and I did this pattern on our own without any classes and had to communicate via email over all the problems we encountered. Perhaps it was that it is really aimed at Bernina owners and we both own Pfaff machines but it really is for a very experienced sewer with great computer knowledge. I would not recommend it without a class and an instructor who can assist you.

I honestly think this is one of my favorite sets of designs I have ever purchased. I have not made the quilt, but I have used many of the designs. The designs are beautifully digitized, look gorgeous with or without applique. And being able to use them with the GO! shapes for applique is just icing on the cake!

GO! Be Dazzled uses applique shapes cut using the AccuQuilt GO! cutter and dies. The GO! makes cutting so fast, and also so accurate. But having cut the applique shapes, how do you know where to put them when stitching out an embroidery design?
Before I go any further, if you’ve been wanting to purchase GO! Be Dazzled but it just hasn’t been the right time for you to do it, be sure to read all the way to the end. I have a special offer for you!
For the majority of embroidery machines, the square blocks are going to take at least 2, if not more, hoopings to complete. In order to guarantee success, even for someone completely new to Embroidered Applique, I devised an easy system for placement of not only the applique shapes on the background fabric, but also for positioning the background fabric in the hoop.
The CD contains complete illustrated instructions for each block, but sometimes there’s nothing quite like a few good photos to tell the tale, so here goes!
The photos that follow were taken while stitching out a “hearts” block (month 06) using the jumbo hoop on my Bernina 830. Your hoop may not be as big as this hoop, but the principles remain the same.
The first thing you are going to do is hoop a piece of medium/heavy weight tearaway stabilizer. The key here is “TEARAWAY”. When you are all done with the embroidery for each block, you want to get rid of as much stabilizer as possible from around the applique shapes. Tearaway makes this sooooo much easier!
The first color to stitch (after you have put the hoop in your embroidery machine) is going to be a placement line to tell you where to position the background fabric. This will be at least a cross-hair marking the center of the block. If you are using a jumbo hoop, you will also get the outline for the block – or at least for the half that you are stitching.
On the background fabric (which has been prepared with a fusible tearaway stabilizer on the back), you will mark the center as specified in the directions. For months 5, 6 and 8 (all squares) this will be the center with the fabric placed square on. For month 7 this will be the center with the fabric placed on point.
Remove the hoop from the embroidery machine and place it on an ironing board (with a padded surface). Take a pin and push it through the center marked on the background fabric. Guide the same pin through the center marked by stitching lines on the stabilizer in the hoop.
Now take a second pin, and poke it through the fabric a couple of inches above the center pin. Move the fabric as necessary (it should swivel around the center pin) until the second pin is aligned with the corresponding point on the stitching on the stabilizer. Use 4 pins to secure the fabric to the stabilizer. (If you really want to, use 505. I am just not a fan of spray adhesives.
Return the hoop to the machine.
The next thing to stitch (in most but not all cases) will be a tackdown line to hold the background fabric in place. For the smaller hoops, this will not happen but do not worry! What comes next works just as well to hold the fabric in place!
Now to get your applique shapes positioned exactly where you want them in the hoop.
The next thing to stitch is placement lines for the first layer of applique shapes.
Click on the photo to see a larger version – it’s a bit easier to see the placement lines!
Now you can go to the ironing board and fuse the first layer of applique shapes in place.
When you are done, return the hoop to the embroidery machine and stitch out the placement lines for any remaining layers of applique shapes. For the heart block, the large hearts in the center of the block have a second, smaller heart, layered over the top.
Here is the block with all layers of applique shapes fused on…
Now you can stitch straight through to the end, changing thread colors as desired.
To stitch the other half of the block (or however many hoopings are required for the hoop that you are using), remove all of the stabilizer that was in the hoop from around the applique shapes. The fusible tearaway stabilizer on the back of the background fabric should be left in place.
Hoop another (clean) piece of tearaway stabilizer. Go through the same set of steps as before. The only difference is that the block already has some stitching on it.
