    I LOVE Jacobean designs, but don't think I want to be tied to the emb machine for a K size quilt ( that's what we would need). But I would never tire of admiring the embroidery. Maybe I'll just bookmark this page/ your blocks and visit when I need a fix. That is some beautiful StitchEra!

    Very nice. Are these from the embroidery library? They have such beautiful designs. Be sure and post the quilt when it's finished.

    I am a fan of Jacobean embroidery. I love your blocks. Please let us know the pattern name and designer.

    Edited to add: Found them. It appears you have to buy each pattern individually. This link will lead you to one of the designs.

    Those are very pretty. What embroidery machine do you use?? I'm looking to upgrade. Thanks.
    Dream as if you'll live forever. Live as if you'll die today.

    Some people are like Slinkies - not really good for anything, but you still can't help but chuckle when you see one tumble down the stairs.

    I, too, am a lover of Jacobean. Your blocks are beautiful. I am not fond of birds in the house, but yours are BIRDS!!! Just spectacular. I hope you have a secondary machine on hand to keep you busy while one of the designs is running. I know there are lot of ups and downs when you have to change thread so often.

    What is the color of the background? And is the fabric a sateen? Great choices. What machine are you using? Thanks for sharing and be sure to let us see the finished quilt as I want to see what you will use on the borders.

    Really beautiful! I can't wait to see it all finished. I don't really quite have a grasp on machine embroidery yet as I just learning it now. So if this is a stupid question...sorry! But does the cutaway stabilizer soften in the wash so you can't tell it's there in the quilt?

    IMO.....If it is a lightweight, it will soften some. The heavyweight...NO.

    I used Yahoo and searched for embroidery stabilizer guide

    Who'd have thought there was such great info on so many sites? These are just a few I took time to look at. I need to read all these sites and make a handy dandy reference guide for myself. Now, when do I start that new project??? lol

    Reminds me of my hand stitching days except these patterns have very close stitching with very fine thread that could not be achieved by hand stitching. So truly beautiful. This work could become addictive and applied to decorating centers or edges of many quilt projects. Am thinking of The Gypsy Wife quilt with a variety of squares enriched with stitches and various colors. You have developed a lovely skill.

    Those are beautiful. I didn't think embordory would interest me whiten I bought my machine. :-( now I wish I had purchased the one with the embordory capability.
