    I got myself an embroidery machine last year (brother innovis 700E II) and started to play around with application embroidery designs. I loved the patches so much that I was looking for a way to use them up and this is what came around: first for Noah and then for Elia.
    I got all about patching, sashing, basting and binding out of the net.

    I convinced myself I could live without an embroidery machine. After seeing these quilts I'm not so sure. I love them both.

    Having an emboridery machine is just as addictive and as expensive if not more than quilting. The threads, the stabilizers and of course the desgins and extra hoops etc. etc. etc.
    It is fun. You did a great job with both of those quilts.

    CHEERS!! Congratulations on that huge accomplishment.

    Now you can spend your cigarette money on sewing supplies. It's a lot better for your health. :lol:
