    Looks logical and beautiful to me, but I don't have an embroidering machine. If the narrow strips seem loose in your hoop, could you embroider before you cut the strips?

    You want to make sure you have enough stabilizer on the back of your sash - if your fabric moves during the embroidery process you'll find it will mess up the threads and mess up your sash. I've embroidered on sashes before - but I leave it the width of the hoop for better stabilization. Good luck.

    The piece of backing I used is very small and I don't believe you will even notice that it is there when the quilt is done.

    I have the Janome 6600P and LOVE LOVE LOVE it and have just recently gotten the 300E and might learn to love it when I learn how to use it. It's quite a learning curve for me and I have no one close by that has one that I can work with. I'm reading and keeping track of all the tips I can possibly learn on here to make it easier to use the Embroidery machine.

    Too bad you didn't post here first! LOL I make pageant sashes all the time and they are about 3-4 inches across. I use sticky stabilizer and then a tearaway on top of the sticky where the embroidery will be. Works great. Your way will work well, too.

    On another note, I need to try doing them with my Magna Hoop. Not suppose to have to hoop stabilizer except what you need to support the embroidery and you can just pin that on. The magnets hold the sash in place.

    Don't you just hate it when the "experts" make a simple procedure complicated. :)

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.

    We have been married for over 42 great years. She has her things she likes to to do, I have mine, but we also have many we enjoy doing together.

    She loves to travel and is right now on a cruise to Panama with our sister-in-law. But I stay home with the dogs, Hate to travel, and do some of the things I enjoy. Occasionally I do spend a little $$$ on toys to match her travel expenses.

    It has been a great journey and I hope all of you have or will have as great a time along the way as Teresa and I have had.

    Good on you for trying new ideas. That 'expert' at the shop should have known this has been done for years. I would suggest that you also place a strip of stabiliser from side to side in the hoop, to help prevent the stitching pulling the fabric in at the sides. It happens with heavily stitched designs. And yes, you can also get different types of wash away stabiliser, also sticky back ones. check out Jenny Haskins website and blog - all will be explained.
