    Ok, this is a challenge for all machine embroiderers.

    The challenge is to use those practice test stitchouts you have lying around! Set them into a quilt like I have, using ONLY what stash and designs you already have on hand.

    No cheating and making more to fit, use just what you already have on hand. You can buy batting for this tho.

    It can be any size, theme or not. You have until Dec 1, 2010 to complete it.

    Here's mine

    Aren't embroidery machines fun. Not long after I purchased my Pfaff CV I decided that I needed to try out the embroidery stitched . I have created embroidered blocks for a shaggy quilt in creams and coffee colours, The blocks are done but not joined :lol: :lol: :lol: I have been too sick all year to handle the bulky fabrics. Hopefully I will be able to "get onto it" in a few weeks time.
    Best wishes with your embroidery. I hope it gives you as much pleasure as mine does. :thumbup:

    Maybe I will upgrade my machine again. This looks like it is fun.

    Really a nice quilt .. I don't have an embroider machine.. So I will have to watch from the sideline and see everyone's creations.
