What are you most proud of? I was really pleased that the back (apart from a couple of thread birdnests) looks almost as good as the front. That's why I also took a photo of the back. It took a day to complete so good to have something that's finished and done, not a UFO.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Make a sample first to get the feel of the technique. I found it difficult to line up the continuous pattern on the horizontal pattern in spite of measuring carefully and lining up in my hoop. The hoop that I have makes it difficult to tweak to get in the right place but I guess that takes more practice, so went for as best I could get. This was the first time I have tried this so I shouldn't expect perfection!.

Beautiful job! Great idea to start small and work you up to a more complex project. Thank you for taking the Machine Embroidered Quilt class.

It is very brave of you to show the birdnests that happen on the back. Thanks for making me feel not so bad when it happens to me.

Thank you for your responses. I was really surprised that this could be made by machine embroidery and am encouraged to have a go at the larger size at a later date. I have also had a go at some small "in the Hoop" too.

I just purchased and embroidery machine and want to use it to quilt a pieced quilt with... I am having trouble with the designs getting distorted due to the bulk of the quilt... does your class go over this?
