    I was undecided between the Ruby or the Diamond but since this was going to be my LAST machine I got the diamond. They are both wonderful machines. Taking classes is the key to doing great work.

    OH! I have a Topaz30. My girls and I are doing HoopSisters 2012 mystery quilt. We have so much fun doing it together! But I need to learn embroidery. Those are so pretty. I need the pattern. Sounds like I need classes too. I'm just so far from my dealer. ROADTRIP!

    That is Nice. I like to see things done on the embroidery machine. Most of the time the quilt designs seem ac ward for some reason, yours look nice.

    It's great if you have a dealer close by but there are a lot of LQS that offer classes but they don't care what machine you have. We also have a sew and vac place here that have embroidery clubs and they don't care either. You may be able to do a google search or call a few places in your area but I know that here that's the way it is. My viking teacher will let anyone take the class and another Janome store is the same way. It would be great if you could find some; it really does help alot. I also read all the tutorials on line at emblibrary.com under projects and Kennys corner and any other sites that have tutorials. By doing this I've learned how to trouble shoot and fix problems that I've had while embroiderying. Good luck to you and your girls.

    I got such a good deal on my Ruby; the previous owner only used it for 7 hours and I got it for 4500 with a warranty and of course classes. I promised myself after making such a large investment that I wasnt' going to let my embroidery machine go unused and even though I could use it more I'm using and learning things each month to do. Right now I'm finishing up making my daughter a mesh beach bag and a cutwork table runner. I get so amazed at the things you can do with it.

    I'm very interested in your pattern. What is the name and where can you find it. Wonderful blocks.

    Yes, I'm amazed like everyone else, how beautiful those blocks are. Is this a one-needle machine? (I didn't take the time to look up your machine..)

    Great job and enjoy.

    Her machine is a one needle machine; it's a Viking sewing and embroidery machine. They just keep getting better and better. I would love to get the pattern; it's great.

    They're all great. Can't wait to see what you do with them!
    Being skinny isn't easy, so I gave up and opted for being sexy instead. (aunty acid)

    It is a combination of both. The block is done entirely in the hoop.
