Thank you! I didn't do any more dec stitches for the 2012 BOM quilt but it's nice the play with the option of doing it.

Thank you, Lisa! I forget from time to time all the wonderful stitches my machine can do!

Do you have a regular machine with decorative stitches or a special embroidery machine.?

04/20/2013 Flag

I have a regular machine with decorative stitches that also has an embroidery attachment for doing bigger embroidery designs.

I have a machine that comes with decorative stitches. I have used one or two on binding. I love your idea of turning the BOM into something prettier.

Your stitching really makes this block! I love how you thought of adding the stitching to something that looks completely different from the projects in the Stupendous Stitching class - that shows you're really absorbed the technique and made it your own!
