    Hi,

    Although quilting is my main passion, I also machine embroider. I just did the usual holiday towels, occasional denim shirt design, and a few table runners.
    However, I am finding that many embroidery deisgns are appealing to me and I could really have fun doing quilts with embroidered squares. And can also embroider quilting designs on quilts instead of free motion quilting or having a long arm quilter do it. I think I am getting hooked!

    I would love to hear from others who also machine embroider.

    There are quite a few folks here that love to machine embroider too. I have a Bernina 630 with the embroidery unit but I have not used it for much besides making quilt labels. One of these days I would love to figure out how to do more with it.

    I have a Brother PR 600 that I use all the time. I also have a Viking SE but I rarely use the embroidery unit because the PR 600 stays set up all the time.

    I also embroider. I have the Brother PR600 and I have the Singer Futura CE-100 and the CE-200. I mainly use my singers for regular sewing now, and do all my embroidery on my brother.

    I love having both kinds of machines to play with. I do quilte a bit of regular embroidery but I also intergrate it into some quilts.

    I have the brother PR620 as well as an older brother, you can get stippling designs to do on the quilts, I did some on my mom and dads quilt that I made them for their bed. Depends on the machine and what size hoop that you have to what you can do with them. You can also make blocks with embroidery to put in them. My favorite site for patterns is www.emblibrary.com they have a quilting section. Lots of sales, usually two free designs a month. I have been machine embroidering pretty steady for 15 years and quilting for just over two years, and they go very well together.
