I don't have an embroidery machine yet, but I love the possibilities.  I saw your Valentines quilt and it is lovely.  I was thinking that Crazy Quilts are great candidates for machine embroideries.

Hi Kim,

Thanks for asking, yes I do some embroidery on the quilts. 2) yes some digitizing I have the Auto digitizing program old one, it is the one that Viking  bought and put in the 4D 5D programs  I really could use a brush up class, I am slow at it mostly just do it because I can't find the designs I want.  I have a D-1 and a Diamond Viking or Husquarna 3) there is a site called (Cute Embroidery .com) that I like. I am working on a quilt now for my neighbor.  I really haven't looked  I just let my quilts talk to me and it may not be what a pro quilter likes but the people who receive them tend to love them.  I am not the best quilter but I do try to pass anything on that I could help some one with if they ask

.

I hope showing the picture was OK 

This lovely lady has cancer and wanted some thing for GD to remember her with. Her new husband wanted one for her so that is how the neighbor got me to make this quilt I do have to quilt it, but the top is done.

what do you think, too busy? I placed the center blocks and got the the same size and then the sides making sure what side each on was on and them sizing them they did how ever get a little to big some times. I use warm and natural batting and this time I am using the soft and cuddle for the backing (the baby stuff) it is so soft.

thank you Sue

Sue great looking quilts, I am sure everyone will love them

Kim,  I have not gotten into digitizing yet.  I do get some great patterns from bunnycup.com and ABC. I think there is also an embroidery library out there somewhere. A place called shoppers rule.com is having some classes on the Generations software, but truefully you can go on the Generations web site and they have the classes as well.  Software is way to expensive for me right now.   There is also PE Design, I have a brother machine so I am not sure if that is a brother package or works with any machine.   Hope this helps

Sue - Happy Monday morning to you!  Wow - such fabulous work on your part.  Thanks ever so much for taking the time to post your quilt photos for all of us to see.  I think just letting your quilts "speak to you" is a lovely idea and I'm absolutely sure your quilt recipients totally love your work.

Are you part of the machine embroidery/quilting group on QCA?

I've done several quilts and wall hangings with both guilting and embroidery. If you look in the Show and Tell Gallery for Kool, Kool Kitties (tags: cats, king size) you will see 2 photos of a guilt that has 14 embroidered butterflies on it. They are a little hard to see, but they are there. The label for my quilts I digitized myself. Because my name is Charlotte, my quilts have a label with a spider and spiderweb and the name "Charlotte's Webs" on them. I also embroider the name of the quilt and date and city/state on the quilt label, then sign it in permanent ink. Some day soon I will put a photo of a label on the gallery. The spaces between the web strands offers me places to fill in with 3 different color embroidery thread, that I match to the colors of the front of the quilt.

I have no idea if we are supposed to mention vendor's names or websites in forums or discussions. Would someone please let me know. I have come across 2 sites with incredible embroidery that I would like to share, but not unless someone says it is ok. 

What embroidery machines do you people use? And what software? I do my quilt piecing, machine quilting on small wall hangings, and machine embroidery on my Babylock Ellissimo. I love it - very dependable. I have a small Babylock Sofia that also does embroidery. I use this machine when I go somewhere to sew or embroider because it is very light weight. I have Masterworks - on which I digitized my spider and spiderweb. I also have Quiltworks and Sizeworks.

 It  is ok to post vendors and web sites.  We do it all the time.   As for mchines I have a Brother Quarttro 6000D which is the same as your Babylock Ellissimo.  It reads pes, and dst.  I have not done any digitizing and while I look at the software, I just am not ready for it yet.  I have a large library of pattens though.  Are the quiltworks and sizeworks digitizing softward

Hi Kim,

I love combining embroidery and quilting.  It's really the only embroidery I do.  I just got a Bernina embroidery machine and I'm just learning what to do.  I haven't yet joined the QCA group.  Have you?  I'm a member of the Scrap Squad group and I love that one.

I'm currently working on a Hoopsisters quilt using my embroidery machine.  It's been a fun process because I've really learned a lot.  I posted some pictures on my blog at www.SewManyQuilts.blogspot.com

The other thing I'm having a lot of fun learning to do is machine applique on my embroidery machine.  but I have a LONG way to go on that.

Cheers, Dionne

Hey all!  I'm pretty excited....I received my advance complimentary copies of Quilting & Embroidery magazine - spring edition - yesterday from Kentucky.  My quilt is featured in the magazine on page 50.  They did an absolutely beautiful job of photographing it.
