I have several OESD embroidery CDs (Quilting from the Heart, Delicate Stitch, Best of Quilting) that allow you to quilt feathered circles or other gorgeous designs. I think you are supposed to embroider on the quilt sandwich. I have not done this, but I'm sure that someone out there has. How has it worked out for you? What did you do on the sashings or borders? Did you have trouble hooping the block when it was attached to a whole finished quilt? Did you use sticky-backed stabilizer or did you actually hoop the block? Thanks in advance for any ideas or help!
