What materials did you use? Batiks, polyester embroidery thread, Eileen Roche's amazing book 'Machine Embroidered Quilting and Applique'

What are you most proud of? I think my colour choices have been really nice so far. I'm glad I figured out the process - using my machine, embroidery software, placement techniques, etc. I could make the blocks all day long! I have a limited amount of fabric to work with and mostly only fat quarters but I was able to eke out all the blocks I needed so I'm pretty proud of my resourcefulness!

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Once you get the rhythm down of the process it flies along and you don't even notice the time. Lining up the continuous applique is the trickiest part for me - just take your time.

I would like to buy an embroidery machine to start simple embroidery projects, would you give me an advice?

I am no expert but I did some research. It is generally recommended to get the biggest hoop size(s) you can afford, at least 5"x7". I purchased from a dealer, important to service the machine & help with problems. I decided on a 'stand alone' machine (will not do regular sewing) because it is less expensive and can be stitching while I sew on a regular machine. My Janome 350e is quite basic but very durable and has features I wanted. Make sure to get one that can use a usb stick or connect to the computer. It's a lot of fun but you need to purchase stabilizer and threads as well. Hope that helps!
