Welcome back! I hope you’ve enjoyed making some disappearing blocks using the Brother Innov-ís BQ3050 machine this week. I encourage you to try this technique with other blocks as well. Starting with a large block, like the 18″ ones I made on Monday and Tuesday, makes it easy to use this technique. Choose a block with simple piecing and you’ll have endless design opportunities. Have fun!
From my September QUILTsocial posts, I showed how to make several projects with some Disappearing Nine Patch blocks. You might like to have a look at these posts for more inspiration.
I also used the laser light for several projects over the last 2 months. Here are a couple of videos you might like to watch for even more information about this great feature. In Video 2 you’ll see the Brother Dream Machine, but the laser light works the same way on the BQ3050.
Now I’d like to introduce a fascinating new attachment I just received – the Circular Attachment for the Brother Innov-ís BQ3050 machine. This attachment can also be used on several other Brother machines. When the package arrived in the mail, I was delighted to see there were two extra feet with the Circular Attachment – a braiding foot and a cording foot. These feet can be used independently of the Circular Attachment as well. And there’s a detailed manual to help you learn how to use the attachment.
Here are a few test samples I made using the Brother Circular Attachment. I think there are lots of design possibilities here!
