Default Using Embroidery Machine Designs for Machine Quilting

I guess this question is for anyone that uses their embroidery machine to quilt their quilt.

I am looking for some outline designs (sort of like a simple redwork design) where it would be just the outline stitched. I am doing a baby quilt and want to quilt my plain blocks with designs, but don't want filled in or appliqed blocks.

Looking for baby theme designs, bear, duck, bottle, etc. I can't seem to find any that are just the outline, everything has such thick stitching or alot of details in the design. Anyone know of a source for something like this?

Thank you

You might look in Embroidery Library under redwork or quick stitch. Also I think there is an Anita Goodesign collection for nursery quilts....Good luck.

There are so many sites out there with these. Hatched in Africa has some freebees if you order at least $5 in designs. I went to their trunk show and their designs are great and not to dense for clothing
Oregon Patchworks is great because it represents alot of sites and has daily specials
emblibrary.com is also great; they also have kenny's corner and project and tutorials to help you if you need more info.
I just discovered this one yesterday. Great sale. We are doing the lady rose in class tonight

I think that now most sites offer quilting designs.
I hope these sites will help you get started.

I want to thank everyone for their suggestions. I think I am looking for something that does not exist. I just want outline stitching, something like a picture from a childs coloring book, simple.

But I sure enjoyed looking at all these sites. I am not giving up. LOL
