    Here is my embroidery machine hard at work on a bag.
    It is a kit bag and I just wanted to add something.

    From the looks of the picture, you are just embroidering around the design in the fabric?

    That is so neat. It will be beautiful when you finish. I have a embroidery machine and need to learn how to use it. But I can't do anything while on the board all day. Three days in a roll.

    That's nice!

    I have a possibly dumb question. If you have an embroidery machine, can you do embroidery inside each block of a quilt and use that as the quilting?
    Has anyone done that? How does it look. I'd love to see pictures of it.

    I'm picturing an all white block quilt, with embroidery designs inside each block. ?

    Not a dumb question, and yes you can. I am going to do just that with my aunts quilt.


    Yes the embroidery is on my machine. I changed the colors, as the color was gray and gray...not going to work too drab.
    Here is how I did it. I chose this design, it was just one swirl, then added another swirl. Then changed out the colors. All on my machine.
    I will be using this bag as an example at the quilt show as I am doing a demo on embroidery. :)

    Your project is beautiful.
    I love my embroidery machine and the many things that I can add to my quilts with simple designs.

    Me too it is mezmerizing to watch it make the design. I have had an embroidery machine for 30 years but none I have enjoyed more than this one.
