    Good Morning. Do any of you have any good ideas for combining machine embroidery in your quilts?

    I have done a little of this. I am planning a baby quilt right now, I do the embroidery first (I use an oversized background so that I can crop as needed). These will be done is bright colors and will be the center of stars where the points will be done in brights.

    Here are four blocks that I did for a row robin this past year

    Look at my avatar; it is a baby quilt I made for my neighbor baby last year. If you want I can post a larger pic and some others I've done. Just pick a theme and go from there.

    I gave this to my DDL for Christmas. It's her fav color and flower. The center calla is applique and the four smaller ones are machine embroidered. I reversed the design for two of the squares. Butterfly is free standing lace done on the embroidery machine.

    Used machine embroidery applique for the lettering on the Bama quilt (still a work in progress!) lol
