    I wanted to try and quilt a quilt on the embroidery machine. I just finished this and I don't think I would do another one. Alot of moving around. This was a guild mystery quilt from Fons and Porter mag.

    don't know if you can see quilting or not

    I know what you mean, Linda - I've only done one, and although it came out nice, it was an awful lot of re-hooping, re-aligning, etc. I shouldn't say never, but the probability of doing another one that way is very small :D You did a beautiful job on yours!

    It looks good. I have looked at all the quilting designs for sale out there and wondered about the reality of using them on a larger quilt. Logistically it looks like a pain to me. Yours did turn out beautiful though. I might have to try it on a baby quilt.

    It really turned out pretty!! Yeah, I can imagine it would be a pain in the rear to keep rehooping so much!!
