The Machine Embroidered Quilt »
InstructionsKeep a watch on how the embroidery files translate to your emb. machine. I had some instances of part of the tack down being becoming part of the outer feathers/circle stitching.

What was your inspiration?
What are you most proud of?
I haven't lost touch with the embroidery side of my Bernina 830!
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Think about how much fabric you will need to hoop & plan your purchase accordingly. If you are going to use the small files I think you could get away with 5 strips of the background & backing fabric but should probably get enough for 6 strips just in case. I thought I was going to use the large emb. files & the jumbo hoop but changed my mind & went with the smaller files & the mega hoop. Sooo, I have quit a bit of leftover fabric of the background & backing fabric (a totally busy Laurel Burch butterfly print).
I used the mega hoop because it is quite long & I could get 2 patterns done in one hooping.
