Yes, I did hoop the quilt sandwich and set the design so the machine would stitch out the design.

I have bought embroidery quilting patterns from Embillirary,com.  They have all types and are not expensive.  I've been purchasing from them for the last three years, I have so many patterns now I won't have to purchase anymore embroidery patterns.  They have all catagories of patterns, also have a projects and show case section on their site.

Hi Rose.  Yes, I've used Emblibrary.com as well for embroidery designs.  I wonder, though, what do you use the embroidery designs for? i.e. do you quilt with them or use them as applique on other projects?

Hi Kim,

I have used them in the wall hanging and quilt top pictured and have recently done some free standing butterflies to use on a crazy quilt block.

Hi Kim,

Yes I love to combing these two art forms.  I just recently starting using my embroidery machine (Bernina 180) and the first project I did was a denim rag quilt. 
I have OESD Explorations embroidery software.  I am trying to find the Make it Stitiches add on (used) so I can work with other designs.

I really like Designs by Sick, they are very reasonable in price and have a great selection of the basics.

Kim,

I absolutely love incorporating embroidery and quilting. I have a Designer SE embroidery machine but wish I had one that would do the larger designs. I have all the hoops for my machine but for quilt I would like to do at least the 200x200. My next embroidery machine will accomodate that for sure. LOL  However, at the present time, there are not that many good quilting designs out there that fit the 200x200 machine that I would like to use.  I have done alot of baby quilts using the embroidery and they turn out so cute. I have a friend that gets in more quilting than I do and she has two quilts waiting for me to quilt that has embroidery. I've done several of her quilts. She has the machine that will do larger designs. When I'm quilting her quilts she does embroidery blocks for me. Coming up with quilting ideas to put in the embroidery blocks is a challenage.

Hi Renee.  Cute rag quilt!  I've seent Designs by Sick on Facebook, but have never purchased any designs from them.  Have you ever tried digitizing your own designs Renee?  How do you like your Bernina?

Hi Ramona.  How big is a hoop that would accommodate an embroidery design that is 200x200?  I use a very standard and old Brother sewing/embroidery machine.  In fact, I have two of them!  One for sewing and quilting and one for embroidery.

Do you digitize your own designs?

Ladies - here is a project of mine that was just featured in the new Creative Machine Embroidery issue March/April 2012.  It's an appliqued and embroidered Child's Growth Chart.  The whole article can be viewed on my website - http://www.kimhansonquilts.com/press/
