Thanks - I did this quilt about 3 years ago - but it turned out so good I decided to post it - one of my favorites - makes me want to get back to some other embroidery projects that are currently in the UFO pile

Stunning!! What type of embroidery machine did you use? I have a machine, but haven't started the embroidery option yet. This gives me motivation.

Thank you! I did this on a Bernina 430 with the embroidery module & laptop computer. I then went crazy about 3 years ago and got a Bernina 830. So now my 430 is used mostly for piecing & quilting and the 830 is usally set up for embroidery - love the jumbo hoop. Take lessons at your dealer if possible.

Thanks, 4Bird! This quilt was done about 4 years ago - not really that prolific! I also adore batiks.
