Elegant Embellishments provides youth an opportunity to be amazingly creative. This Quilt Quest block offers several ways to use embroidery and many other ways to embellish your quilts including trapunto, fabric folds, lace and other trim additions, and much more!
Quilt Quest is a comprehensive curriculum that teaches youth about quilts from design and construction to care, preservation and even entrepreneurial opportunities. Quilt Quest project blocks are designed to supplement the Quilt Quest curriculum with specific quilt projects.
These project blocks assume some level of sewing skill, and are not designed for those with no prior quilt making experience. The skills required for each Project Block correspond with the block numbers. Project Block 1 is the most basic and requires only basic beginning skills. Subsequent blocks require increasing levels of skill and mastery, ending with level 6. Step by step instructions with illustrations of each step are not offered.
If youth are interested in using the Quilt Quest project blocks but do not have sewing skills, they should be able to do so successfully with the help of volunteers who understand sewing techniques. We strongly suggest that anyone using Quilt Quest project blocks also have access to the Quilt Quest curriculum CD for reference.
