    Let's see if I can get these three quilts up on the board.
    One is butterflies that I did for my sister's little girl.
    The car quilt is for my brother's grandson.
    I digitized these from pictures and then machine embroidered them onto a quilt.
    The applique SunBonnet Sue I did from scraps. Didn't cost me a penny. However, I had a HUGE mess in my kitchen for a good week.

    See if you can find where I had an oops! and had a do over.

    Love them! Especially the embroidery. What did you use to digitize the pictures? I have a Babylock Ellegante and want to make my own designs. Havent figured out which one to get for this machine, without spending lots of money.

    I love all of them, but especially the Sunbonnet one, it looks authentic, it fooled me. Great job!

    Did you see the Boo-Boo on the Car Quilt. I had to do two of the squares over.

    I scanned in a picture or downloaded a .bmp. Took it over to my Babylock digitizing program. Cleaned it up and got rid of all the unwanted objects. Added color, thread count and design. I write it to a card and insert it into my Ese2 machine to sew it out. I do any testing and tweeking before it ready for the quilt material.
    I have done hundreds and hundreds of designs myself, plus I've downloaded tons from other digitizer online. Which, I know I will never ever use.
    I have plenty to share if you need any. I know they are costly from the companies, like 45.00 for a card of 20.

    The SunBonnet Sue quilt has some 3 dimensional parts on it too, like the hair sticking out from under their hats. It's embroidery floss. Turned out cute.

    All your quilts are gorgeous, love the car quilt. I never would have seen the mix-up if you hadn't said anything, it should be x-y-z. I would leave it just for interest ( I think ) maybe I wouldn't. Thank you for sharing.

    I am so thrilled that I received so many comments. I just posted about 3 hours ago. I really appreciate it. Thanks

    I am 71, been sewing since I was 19 when I got my first sewing machine, Pfaff while in Germany.
    I have 3 children, 6 grandchildren and 1 great granddaughter.

    Can't count how many quilts I've made over the years. I have a UFO basket quilt top that was given to me in 1960 by my mother-in-law. She had it a long time before me and she never got around to finishing it either. I know it's between 50 and 70 years old. I saw someone else had a basket quilt on this board and I pulled mine out of my stash and it is still strong and almost new looking. I think that will be my next project. I need to get a name and date on it.

    Yes, it was the X and Y --- I sent it to my brother and he didn't see it either. My sister sent me an e-mail telling me to go back to school and practice my ABC's, so my brother sent it back and I fixed it. What an embarrassment.

    Wonderful job. I am so impressed with your digitizing. I have tried this a few times, but can't seem to get the hang of it yet but still trying. You are VERY talented.

    You did a wonderful job! It took me several looks to see that the x and y are backwards, so I guess I need to learn my abcs again too LOL You did a marvelous job at digitizing. I am trying to teach myself how to do it right now, but it is all so confusing to me that Im not getting that far. Keep the pictures coming.... Your quilts look awesome!
