Project

Hummers & Wildlife

What are you most proud of? The star blocks turned out quite well and the embroidered blocks are gorgeous. Even though the free motion quilting is not even close to expert, I completed the whole quilt myself. What advice would you give someone starting this project? I would suggest doing the embroidered designs & then putting the block together. If you want to use the embroidery machine for the quilting, find a better way to do it than attempt to work on a finished King Size quilt. I ended up embroidering the stars & hearts design and then adding a bit of batting under the design and appliqueing them to the quilt and then free motioned around each design.
