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.

This is so pretty. I haven't taken this class yet because my machine doesn't have embroidery capabilities. BUT, I just bought the new Bernina 750 so once I figure out the embroidery stuff, I may give this a try. Are those hourglass shapes of the quilt top actually pieced or is that some form of applique? I love the look of those graceful curves.

Congrats on getting the 750! You are going to have so much fun with the embroidery! The hourglass shapes are applique. The embroidery design does all the work - you just have to trim off the excess fabric and then let your machine do all the nice embroidery.

I have developed a passion for FMQ and the 6 inch throat on my current machine just isn't cutting it. LOL. I pick up the new machine on Saturday. I can't wait.

Aside from the usual quilting supplies, fabric, etc, did you have to purchase anything else (like embroidery designs for instance) to complete this class?
