    Does anyone know where I might find some nice continuous line quilting designs for my embroidery machine? (Janome)

    I'd like to know of some also. I just bought 4 of them from Nancy's Notions but they are more for the squares and not a continuous design for a border.

    Yes, I have ordered from Splinters and Threads. The designs stitch out nicely and are very reasonable prices. I ordered the Continuous Single Line Quilting designs.

    Hi Everyone:
    This is the first time I have posted on the board. All of
    you seem so knowledgeable about machines and I am getting
    ready to purchase a new one. I am so torn betwee the Bernina
    44QEand the Baby Lock Esante. I have read about each of them and gone into the dealers and looked at them and have been shown the different bells and whistles on them. If any of you have the Stitch Regulator do you like it and is it worth the money for FMQ. (Thats the Bernina plus embroidery). The Baby Lock has the cutting of your thread that seems to save time and mess which I don't think the Bernina has. So what would you all go with. HELP!!!!!

    Oh lucky you! Have they let YOU try the machines? You might want to do that. If your going to use it for machine quilting, the larger the arm opening (the space you have to squish your quilt into) is important. I have a machine (not the ones you are looking at..they are my dream machines!) that has thread cutting capablities and it has spoiled me rotten! I love it. Have fun and don't rush, enjoy the process!

    I got a lot of designs from Embroidery Library. You can get some for $1.00 a piece and the more you buy, the bigger discount. I have quilted using my babylock esante, not easy on bigger quilts, but with some designs it didn't matter if they were placed in the hoop just right.

    If you're looking for embroidery to quilt your quilt check out the site below. Look for the 1.00 deals. I've bought and used the ebroidery designs and quilted a baby quilt using the hoops on my machine. Worked really well.

    Thanks for all those websites! I'm ashamed to say that I've been sitting here at my computer looking at them all since I posted this question several hours ago. I also found this one....
