    Thank you Kyiav10 and sewhappy57, its not that hard to do.... at first i had troubles with setting the tension on emb. machine. Now i have it set properly so now i going speed ahead with projects that i have started and must finish. I had troubles with sewing the little blocks together at first the line that is embroidered at the end of pattern was hard to see for me...on account of the batting seem to distract me :oops: I'd line them up and pin and sew then when i'd take a closer look they'd be off so much. But i figured out a way to see the grid line and now no problems putting them together. I used a water soluble marker and drew the blue line on the grid, so now i can see it better, and they are coming together very well.
    It sure fun to do, i love to see it grow as i'm putting it together. I will post a picture once its all done. Happy sewing everyone.

    This is absolutely breath taking....is it by hand or machine. You have to post it once you finish adding blocks. I am in awe over your work.

    That is very pretty, Denise! It looks similar to the watercolor technique, but with embroidery. You must have a pretty fancy machine. :D

    Thank you sewsew2 and CissyQuilts. My machine isn't a fancy one, just janome memory craft 300E, all this machine does it embroider. I had it for many many months before i started using it. Silly me , everytime i open the box and take out the machine, i'd turn it on, chicken out and put it back in box. Now i feel silly , its just a machine, but i was afraid i'd break it and i'm loving it now. I went nuts buying patterns all over the place, now just need to start collecting fabric to do some more projects.

    I wouldn't change the colors that were wrong. I think they look great just the way they are. This makes it more your own then a carbon copy.

    Denise, it is really looking beautiful! Are you using a mega hoop or are you rehooping with the design? It looks like you are doing the design in pieces...maybe I'm confused. It just looks complicated to me...I'm afraid to try something like that on my machine...yet :wink:

    each block is a 4" square you hoop the batting with the fabric and emb it

    Denice and I are both doing the same projects together but she is way ahead of me on this one. I'll catch up sooner or later. She does do a fantastic job and hers come out looking much better then mine

    hi sandpat, it does look hard but believe me its easy. I start out with putting stablizer down the some batting then i put the fabric on top and hoop. It's done on a 4x4 hoop. Some parts take 15 mins. to embroider and some take as long as 45 mins. I'm trying to save on fabric so i just move the hoop over when i do the next block, after i cut them apart from the one piece of fabric then remove the stabilizer on the back, line them up the put them together. I was thinking i know its a delft blue , but wouldn't this look awesome also in red? Just an idea, always thinkiing of different ways of doing things :lol: . Have a great day.

    These blocks are stunning. Can't wait to see the whole quilt.
    No matter how tough life is, it sure beats the alternative.
