I got curious and started playing around with it. It was neat, but very limited in function so I traded it in on a Brother PE780D.

    I made several Disney quilt blocks for my wife to use in a quilt, but she was busy on another project, so I decided to try making a quilt.

    She had me using her 40+ year old Singer, that did not cut it for me. I went and bought myself a new Brother Runway.

    Now I'm hooked and it is something my wife and I enjoy doing together.
    Enjoy your "together time"...... :) ....just don't fight over the stash :(

    A lot of time, you just have to go with your guts-no matter what an "expert" tells you-looks great!

    Great ideas ladies and love this tutorial. I'm sooooo new to the embroidery / quilting world so my question is... could you also use tear away stabilizer underneath, or should you always use something on top? Hope this makes sense. Thanks for the great info!

    floriana also makes a stabilizer called PERFECT STICK, you hoop it, score it with a pin, peel top slick layer off and it's sticky underneath. i've used tons of it, works great.

    You did great! I quilt all of my baby quilts on my embroidery machine. I use single stitch designs, and leave my hoop on my machine at all times. I only move the quilt. It works great. I love it cause I am one of those that CANNOT learn how to stipple.

    I love this idea. Never would have thought of embroidering on the sashing but it looks great and I will sure try it. ♥
