    Good Morning. Do any of you have any good ideas for combining machine embroidery in your quilts?

    I have done a little of this. I am planning a baby quilt right now, I do the embroidery first (I use an oversized background so that I can crop as needed). These will be done is bright colors and will be the center of stars where the points will be done in brights.

    Here are four blocks that I did for a row robin this past year

    Look at my avatar; it is a baby quilt I made for my neighbor baby last year. If you want I can post a larger pic and some others I've done. Just pick a theme and go from there.

    I gave this to my DDL for Christmas. It's her fav color and flower. The center calla is applique and the four smaller ones are machine embroidered. I reversed the design for two of the squares. Butterfly is free standing lace done on the embroidery machine.

    Used machine embroidery applique for the lettering on the Bama quilt (still a work in progress!) lol

    Am learning how to make different blocks and putting them together. This valentine is another work in progress using octogons.
    Used single ones for quilted table toppers and candle mats.

    Old McDonald when I wanted to work with blue fabric.

    Old lady is also blue ... used border on fabric for ends ... still not crazy about the stripes.

    Just look through the websites for embroidery patterns. Lots of ideas there. I like embroidery library. They have great sales.

    What kind of machine do you have to do all this embroidery? Do you use the same one to quilt with too? I would like an embroidery machine and a quilting one but cannot afford two. any suggestions?

    I have a Viking Diamond and a Topaz. Both have a large throat. I do most of my embroidering on the Diamond. Then I quilt on it after I have the motifs done. Sometimes I have both going at the same time.

    I have done 2 embroidery quilts. This was the first. The other one was for a grandson and I can't find the pictures. It was done in primary colors with trucks, trains and cars.

    I try to make use of my Embroidery machine as much as possible. Everyone that is having a baby in my family or friends always look forward to my quilts. Here is one for a friend that has a Safari themed nursery:

    I have the Duetta from brother, I can embroider and quilt on it also. I have made several baby quilts doing the alphabet with solid blocks and a print in the next block simple but cute I also made a Disney quilt for my nurse that fills my pain pump she decorated her nursey with Disney and made her a quilt for a girl. She was really surprised and loved it.

    Your embroidery is beautiful! It inspires me to get moving with learning that. My Pfaff 2170 will embroider, but I haven't had the time to pull it all out and try yet. I am just now learning to master my free motion quilting with or without the fabric mover. It isn't a time factor--it's energy!

    I think it just adds something to the quilt. While we have the embroidery machines we better make use of them.

    I really like your scriptures quilt ... the alternate squares, etc. I have those patterns and I believe you have inspired me to proceed. lol

    I agree, I have the Brother 270d. and my son-in-law is a computer geek so he found me any desighn you can imagine. I load it to my ped box and start working. I purchased my machine on e-bay and only paid 350.00 that included shipping.
