    It takes a few hoopings to get the quilting done. I have done baby quilts . I am not sure about doing anything bigger.

    You don't need any special software. Just download the design and center it on the block like you would any other emb design. You can do it as QAYG or wait and quilt after it's sandwiched. I wouldn't try to do anything bigger than a laptop after it's sandwiched. It's too hard to get it through the space between the needle and side of the machine unless you have one with a large harp. There is a book call Embroidery Machine Quilting in 8 Easy Lessons you can get that will show you the basics. I think it also has a CD with her quilting designs. You need a 6x10 hoop but I resized the designs to use with my 5x7 with no trouble.

    I quilted the outline of a Shamrock in the solid blocks of a Single Irish Chain quilt. Basted the quilt with safety pins. Hooped the quilt without a stabilizer -- top, batting and backing. Used the same thread in the needle and in the bobbin. Every time I wanted to embroider the Shamrock outline I had to rehoop the three layers; however, the quilt was beautiful. SITD through the Chain blocks. Practice on a potholder if you want.[ATTACH=CONFIG]575507[/ATTACH]

    How many times did you have to rehoop the quilt and what size hoop did you use?

    The quilt pattern is from the Eleanor Burns book "Single Irish Chain in a Day". I used my embroidery software to scan the Shamrock included in the book and digitized the Shamrock. First time I had tried to do this and everything happened as it should. There are 15 plain blocks in the quilt. I used my 100 by 100 mm hoop. Each Shamrock was placed as close as possible to each corner. This meant I rehooped the quilt 60 times. The Shamrocks are tilted in different directions because I didn't want to worry about being uniform. Some stems are toward the center of the block and some stems are to the corner.

    Sorry it took me so long to answer your question. I was looking for the book and could not find it. Had to find the photo and count the blocks.
