    This is my second Downy quilt. I'm told that "Rock and Roll" is a term commonly used a skate parks. Since my quilt has a skateboard theme, I thought that would be a good name.

    I used my embroidery module to quilt the blocks. The first border is a decorative stitch from my sewing machine, and the second border is done by FMQ-ing. So, a little of everything. It was difficult to get the blocks hooped up evenly to be embroidered. I used the template that came with my hoop. Even though some of them are off, I don't think it hurts the overall look of the quilt. I hope you like it.

    Yes, hooping and embroidering the designs can take some practice. But, it's worth it for the professional results!

    It sounds like you've tried it. I used a small electronic component (because it was just the right size) to hold the bottom hoop open. I didn't use any stabilizer, just hooped the quilt sandwich as is. And I taped the bottom hoop to my work table to hold it in place while I pressed the top hoop inside to secure the quilt. That was the easiest way for me to do it. It did get better with practice.
