I want to make a quilt for my mom for mothers day with the names of all her children, grandchildren and greatgrandchildren. There are 25 of us to list on the quilt. I also want to incorporate some of these embroidery designs. Any ideas on what type block would look good with the embroidery where I can also embroider names in the blocks. There are 9 different embroidery designs to use in the quilt.

These are beautiful and will look wonderful however you arrange them. What kind of machine do you have, and where can these designs be found?
Thanks!

I think that's a wonderful idea. I'm not very creative without a pattern to follow so I guess I don't really have a good suggestion for you. The only thing I came up with was to embroider each person's name in a block and use the flowers in alternate blocks with something else. And I realize that isn't very helpful! The flowers are beautiful though.

Are you wanting to create your own embroidery for machine embroidery or hand embroidery?
Maybe you could do something like the flower of the month (using a flower for each month the person was born). Then put the person's name and birth date on that same block.
I am sure with that many to do, you want to keep it fairly simple so you can get it done by Mother's Day so I would not do anything terribly elaborate.
But I do love you idea! good luck :)

I have the Brother Quattro 6000D. I got the design at the emblibrary.com. They are called Jacobean Florals

I also have the Quattero 6000 and this type of jacobean works up just beautiful- If you don't want to put the names IN the same block as the flower, how about using a sashing between and embroider the names on the sashing...

Absolutely gorgeous. I agree with Cindy for the names.
