Does your machine have the basting stitch to stitch around the perimeter? If not, maybe pin it in a couple places where your needle won't hit the pins.
Thanks Donna 13350....great method and never thought of that...I do have a basting stitch...and sounds like the perfect solution...On my next quilt I'll give a go...

Just wondering if anyone has the color list for an old Dakota Collectible design (really old !). It is the Serenity Prayer done in machine embroidered crossstitch. It has a lighthouse scene with the prayer. I have exhaustively searched the internet but cannot find the same design. Evidently when I transferred it from the original disk to my computer, the color file did not come, and I can't find my original old disk (before cd's). I have the design, but the colors are not right, and since there are 40 colors and I want them right, I just thought I would ask before going forward on a guess.

TIA

I use my embroidery machine to quilt sometimes and found re-hooping a pain until I bought a magnetic hoop. Much much easier.

i got a magnetic hoop for Christmas. Tried to quilt with it but didn't seem like the magnets were strong enough for the thickness of the quilt

Magnetic hoops sound like a real winner. Do they make them for all different brands? What kind of machine do you have? I have a Brother DreamMaker XE Innovis VE2200

If you have a computized machine they say you should be careful in using the magnetic hoops...anyone ever have issue with this?

Aren't all embroidery machines computerized? Mag hoops have been sold, in use, for quite a while and no machine maker has sent up alarms. I'm not afraid of them.

Magnetic hoops are made for the machines. I have one for my Viking and my Brother, they are great. I also use a magnetic seam guide on the presser foot plate when needed. No problems at all. The computers in the machines aren't like the computers or laptops.
