Embroidered Quilt

Project Description

What are you most proud of? I am proud I learned how to get design files from my computer to my embroidery machine; how to get those designs to stitch; I really struggled with alignment in the continuous embroidery so I didn't give up until I made it work and found a solution (a cloth setter for my Janome machine). I'm glad I finished the project even though I had challenges and it's not perfect (I ran out of thread, my motifs are misaligned before I found the cloth setter, some of my feathers are cut off by the binding, and my quilt is not square!) What advice would you give someone starting this project? Try some test pieces first and get comfortable lining up your motifs. Be patient and don't sweat it! (And I found Clover Wonder Clips to be great for holding all the layers together when adding sashing strips - easier than getting pins through the layers!)
