    Machine Embroidered Quilts

    Here are two Anita Goodesign quilts I began in 2013 when I had a break from concentrated patchwork sewing; sometimes we need to let the machines work for us and it's such a delight watching the beautiful designs take shape. Crane Tapestry and Golden Tapestry. I still need to SID both and put a border on the Crane.Name:  2013 Crane Tapestry.JPG

    T is it True? H is it Helpful? I is it Inspiring? N is it Necessary? K is it Kind?

    Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.

    very pretty
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    Her designs are awesome. You have executed them beautifully. They are way beyond my capabilities.

    I love anitagoodesign! I've been trying to talk my self out of the tree of life cd...I have so much to catch up on already!

    Both of your quilts are beautiful! Was your fabric difficult to hoop and keep square? Her designs fit together so perfectly!

    Beautiful work! Did you know -- Anita Goodesign is not a personal name -- it stands for " I Need a Good Design"!

    You have two very beautiful quilts! Machine Embroidery requires a totally different skill set. It isn't as easy as you think it might be. Once you know the tricks of the trade they become easier.

    The name is not of a female but a man using his grandmother's name! Glad you like them.

    No, I didn't have any problems hooping the satin fabrics in my Brother Innovis 4000D. I have seen the tree of life but not attempted it yet. Thank you all for your kind comments and appreciation of my machine efforts - don't think I can take all the credit when designs are digitized.
