    Right now I only do free motion machine embroidery. I have a friend who is (trying) to teach me patterns.

  2. Sandy Raz says:

    I have used Embroidery in the center of a Square scattered throughout the quilt…..I made it for my husband and used a variety of designs of deer, trees and hunting type designs.

  3. valerie csmith says:

    Right now I am Embroidering Poinsettias on an table cover that I had quilted. I have this year put embroidering on tablerunners and wallhangings! I love to combine the two crafts together

  4. Julane Williams says:

    Have not learned my new machine yet but want to make a quilt with some of the squares embroidered with things my grandchildren love.

  5. Denise says:

    I’ve made several quilts where the machine embroidery was actually the focal point and have made other quilts where simple lines machine embroidery was used as the quilting. For example, I created a sweet quilt made from cute machine embroidered frogs and then quilted it with dainty machine embroidered butterfly outlines. I also made a snowball quilt for my sister and used the outline of machine embroidery for hearts and teddy bears to quilt it. I love to combine embroidery and quilting. :-)

  6. Lora Chaney says:

    I have used machine embroidery in many quilts as a way to personalize them, and I also use designs that coordinate with the fabrics I have chosen, or vice-versa, to make a themed quilt. Embroidering on denim rag quilts is a favorite of mine–you can personalize thse quilts by using designs that showcase the recipient’s likes, occupation, hobbies, pets, and even their personality!!!

  7. Tammy says:

    I just finished 2 (for twins) baby girl quilts. I used embroidered angels on both and chose pinks for one quilt and lilacs for the other. They turned out beautiful!

  8. Sue Kaminske says:

    I love doing machine embroidery and I usualy use it in the label for the back and sometimes on the grandkids quilts I will hide a design that I think is all about them and see if they can find it!

  9. Sue Larson says:

    I use machine embroidery to do the quilting, like redwork hearts in a plain block, etc… I also am going to do machine embroidery squares (5 little monkeys jumping on the bed) and then machine embroider simple designs in the blank squares for the quilting. I love combining both! :)

  10. lyn evans says:

    I use redwork embroidery to quilt my finished quilts as well as having made seversl quilts for my grandkids that have embroidered squares in them the kids love them

  11. VLAbney says:

    Right now I’m using the embroidery machine to quilt squares for a rag quilt, as part of my learning process.

  12. Sylvia M says:

    I do the embroidery in the fabric first and then I put everything together

  13. ELLEN says:

    I have used my Emb. machine to quilt every other block, it makes for a fast finish to baby quilts!! but embroidered block also enhance the project.

  14. Deborah Kennedy says:

    Can’t get enough embroidery, doing 12 Days of Christmas wall hanging now

  15. Paula Malone says:

    I am currently piecing in the hoop on my embroidery machine. The crazy parches will then be sewn together with sashing. Having so much fun.

  16. Susan Novak says:

    I have used my embroidery machine to make a whole quilt right in the machine (Hoopsisters and Anita Gooddesign). Also to make the quilt label.

  17. Karen says:

    My favorite use of machine embroidery on a quilt was the assorted names on tags on blocks that look like Christmas packages. My most frequent use of machine embroidery is on the quilt labels.

  18. Charlotte Brown says:

    I would use it as part of the quilt and the quilting itself.

  19. Maggie says:

    Since I retired in July, I am starting a quilt with my embroidery machine. It is so easy to keep everything even.

  20. Dana says:

    The first quilt I made was embroidered blocks and sashing, it was a cute little girls quilt. I just finished a Christmas wall hanging which is all quilted, but I added free standing lace snowflakes to it, which really made it pop.

  21. Marla says:

    I have used machine redwork in a quilt and have put in initials. Reading the above comments I can see there are a lot more ways I can use my embroidery machine with quilting.

  22. Cherie Bush says:

    Love embroidery, just learning to quilt, but have lots of ideas dancing in my head. Think my first efforts would be to embroidery red work designs & then coordinate fabric for quilt

  23. ann caldwell says:

    yes i have done embroidery on my quilts. its not hard to do and so much fun , adds a lot fun

  24. Virginia Frazier says:

    I would use machine embroidery to add extra blocks with a solid background and using outline quilting blocks and quilt each one. It would make a smaller quilt become larger by adding the beautiful outline designs.

  25. Cindy Amend says:

    I would like to include appliques in the squares and would love to be able to machine embroider the stippling on a quilt.

  26. Nancy Van Deusen says:

    I like to use embroidery designs in the borders and “spaces” to make my quilts extra special. And sometimes I embroider a quilt label.

  27. Pam George says:

    I have just finished a quilt that was machine embroidery and put together an quilted on the embroidery machine. I have the second one all the machine embroidery is finished and now to put it together and get it quilted on the embroider machine. Then next I have the designs, fabric, and thread for a candlewick design quilt. With all this on my plate I know where my embroidery machine is, do you know where and what your embroidery machine is doing?

  28. Debbie says:

    I just bought my Pfaff Creative 2.0 and can’t wait to do some embroidering with it. I have a new granddaughter and would love to make her a quilt for her crib. Embroidering it means I can really make it personal and specific to her which is really exciting to me.
