    I love to use machine embroidery in my quilting, a gift for our friends in Alberta. The quilt wa done for my girlfriend who collects teddy bears and finally got pics.

    Beautiful work. I especially like the table topper colors, I would never have used those border colors and they really make the Santa pop!!

    The santa piece uses the most unusual color borders, but perfect coloring for this santa. Like another posted, I would never have thought of these colors, but you did a great job!

    What size are these? I just got an embroidery machine that does 4 x 4 designs. I wanted the larger one, but couldn't afford it.

    They look great, by the way!

    Hi Misty The teddy bears used both 5x4 3/8 & 8x5 1/2 hoops.The Santa comes in a small 3.86 x3.87. What type of machine format do you use?

    Your embroidery quilt is beautiful. I am very lucky to have a new Janome 1100 MCSE and find it very intimidating. Your quilt has inspired me to spend more time taking advantage of my machine.
