    Is there anyone else that makes this type of quilt - I would like to hear what designs you use.[/quote]

    I have made one so far but have a box of embroidries to make more. My first one was done with teddies from Bunnycups. I'm doing dragons from The Quiltery to make quilts for 2 GS for Chritmas. Each dragon takes about 2 hours or more but so worth it.
    I've also embroidered things to make totes for shopping. These were from Emb Lib. My trouble is too many ideas not enough sewing and too much time on this site.

    I do towels, pot holders and lap quilts. Want to try and do some on shirts - haven't tried that yet.

    Yes they are stiff - that's why I don't quilt other than around the block. It does make the block fluffy then.

    I did one for my grandson that had deer designs. It took over an hour for each one to stitch out. I told him to take care of it because he would not get another one.

    I did a twin size quilt with embroidered flowers for my MIL
    after her death(in a nursing home) the quilt was no where to be found. That thing took me forever to do those blocks. It was worth it she seemed to like it.

    Just do it!!!! I find the machine is smarter than me, so if you have the patience to change thread color and use the right stabilizer, the sky is the limit!

    Love your quilt. That's a lot of embroidery. I don't have that much time to embroider so my quilts tend to be more piecing with a little bit of embroidery, so I'm always looking at quilts seeing how I can add just a touch of embroidery.

    I used Hatched in Africa designs to match the Asian fabric that I had.

    the quilt pictured with my name is all embroidered. I did it for my youngest daughter, one of twins. The pattern is called Butterfly Corners. My pictogram quilt has a lot of work that looks like embroidery but you make the flowers, etc, by combing the pictogram stitches on your machine.

    I also do machine embroidery and use the designs in quilt blocks....was having issues about how to quilt without detracting from the designs......saw a snowmen quilt on this blog, where quilting was done with straight lines radiating out in a sunburst like pattern from the design (4 lines outward for each quarter of the sqare) and it was really neat......before this, I had just done close stippling around the design....
