    Beautiful! I am working on a quilt for me, finally! What I would love to do someday is embroider pictures of all the dogs I have owned and make it into a wall hanging. Don't have an embroidery machine.

    Your quilt is beautiful. I don't have an embroidery sewing machine but here are some ideas since you asked.

    Some ideas....

    Birds and/or flowers would make nice quilts.

    If someone likes sports maybe team mascots/logos for the league they like.

    Snowflakes for winter quilt or christmas quilt.

    Sea creatures.

    Different types of Leaves- shades of green, or autumn colors.

    I did a Hummel quilt that was embroidered for my mom. She went into a care facility and couldn't take her Hummels, that she collected, so I made it so she would have Hummels with her. She passed away in May and my dad has it hanging now.

    It is beautiful.
    I have made a full size embroidered quilt for my bed and several embroidered blocks for baby quilts.
    A Lot of work but I got so carried away I bought a 2nd emb machine so I could get the blocks done faster,LOL

    That is a lot of hours of embroidery! I know how long it takes just to do a label! Your quilt is awesome and truly a keeper for yourself.

    I have enough squares left to make a runner for my dresser. Not selling this one.

    Is there anyone else that makes this type of quilt - I would like to hear what designs you use.
    I also have most of those designs, from Embroidery library? last year was the $1 sale-- I did stitch out a couple but the embroidery is so dense, ended up frameing them as thought it would be too stiff a quilt? but it is certainly awsome in a quilt. have you don't anything else with embroidery?
