    I am making a quilt with machine embroidered designs from emblibrary.com, called "Animals in Pajamas II" I fell in love with the little guys and am anxious to put either nine or twelve of them into a quilt for my nephew's first child due in December. I think I'll us the Quilter's Cache pattern of "Hourglass 4" as the surrounding block. Not sure yet. There will be more to come (if I don't shoot my embroidery machine! :evil: ).

    Funny you should mention that, CajunQuilter. I wondered the same thing. I don't think any of the Animals in Pajamas collections have a ducky. It's an outrage! I may need to write them.

    Ducky, those are the cutest! You might just have to buy a Ducky separately though...can you find one?

    Ha! I found a duck in pajamas. I need to finish the others first before I clear the memory card to add it. Yes! There will be a duck!

    Adorable! I am eager to see the finish piece. Hourglass would be good symbolically -- children grow so fast.

    I know your pain regarding embroidery machines. I used to design embroidery images and testing them on my machine would be the most frustrating thing, my Brother machine is so pissy!!!

    Wow! I'm impressed. I really thought that machine embroidery couldn't be very good, but that is great! Cute little animals, too. The finished quilt will be darling.

    Thanks for sharing my excitement here with these little guys. I am working on three more and will post them, too. Not sure if I should do it here or start a new thread with a different subject line....

    Ninnie, I didn't shoot it. All I needed to do is give it a stern lecture.

    They really do, don't they? I have loved every design I've gotten from them. My next venture is to try their appliques.

    I'm in awe of you for designing images. That seems like it would be fun! Can you show us any of your designs?

    Jim'sGem, I think you would really enjoy it. It's just a fun change of pace. Ninnie and Cutebuns do quite a bit also.
