    Sorry, this may be a dumb question. I'm picturing an all white block quilt, maybe different color sashing and each block being embroidered and quilted around the perimeter of the quilt.
    Would this work? I know technically it would, but do people actually use embroidery as the quilting?

    Yes you can embroider thru the quilt sandwich with an embroidery machine. I do it all the time on my Janome 300E. I use a sticky back stabilizer in the hoop and then stick my quilt piece over that to quilt.
