I decided that there was no need to re-invent the
wheel block when there are so many clever ideas floating around on the internet, starting with a couple of decorator ideas from our previous blogs:
Ladybirdee suggested using beautiful fabric to make appliqued egg shapes to create a feature panel for a bag or table mat.
Judysew4th used paper piecing to make a basket feature to add to a guest towel.
Both the above ideas were stitched with Cotton Mako’ 50, the finest of the threads in the Cotton Mako’ range. This is the best thread to use to achieve hidden applique stitches or a flat finish for foundation or paper piecing.

- Amy Friend has used thermoweb to customise a shoulder bag with a Bunny pocket (with 3 dimensional ears).
- Use up some orange & green fabric scraps to make a basket full of carrots for the Easter bunny. See the simple instructions below from MissouriQuiltCo.com
