    I took these pictures at our recent quilt show and the person used 12 in blocks with a pretty fabric and her fancy stitches on her machine
    I didn't get the complete quilt but you will get the idea

    Beautiful! Thanks for sharing. I need to use my fancy stitches to keep them from freezing up according to the man who does maintainence on my machine. I think I will give her method a try. :)

    Thank You for sharing the beautiful pics! I need to play with various stitches on my machine but just never take the time. Maybe you have just given me the nudge I needed.

    I'm so glad you posted this. I was pretty sure I had seen those machine embroidery designs before, just couldn't remember where. Just shows how fabric selections can make a design your own. Same pattern, but two stunning quilts with different personalities!

    Great job! I'm guilty for not using my fancy stitches on my machine.

    Those fancy stitches really embellish the quilt. My machine doesn't have all those stitches, and the ones it has, it doesn't make properly.
