I have 2 completed quilts..quilted by LAQ with batting similar to warm n natural. Don't know brand but it feels nice and light in my quilts.
I would like to embroider names of recipients and birth date and my name. because of the 3 layers already in fixed place do I need to use a no show backing or water soluable adheisive? Would it be all right to just hoop and embroider. I'm using a Baby Lock Ellegante.
Help! I would like to start this AM if possible.
Joni ,sorry I can't help you there ,I hope someone can
EAT!! SLEEP !! QUILT!!
I agree with Louise. That is how they do all of the quilts on display at the shop. The labels are made "after the fact" and hand stitched to the backs.
I'm not wanting a label at this time, I want the name embroidered directly on finished quilt. Guess I'll have to make a sandwich, FMQ and then try to embroider it...nothing better late than never! Thanks gals!
I use a water soluble adhesive back stabilizer in my hoop, so that I can place the quilt in the hoop without hooping it. Be sure that' it's securely stuck down and the weight of the quilt is well distributed and you should be OK
I was trying to decide which stabilizer to use. I get that done then add small square on back to hold extra fabric for emergency down the years..water soluble it is!!!!
OK here are 2 sample of embroidery front and back on quilted practice piece. Only difference I can tell is lower case "L" on bottom love. What do you think one with water soluble back and one without? Think I'll try to use WS on 1st name...just to be safe...can I just not put the WS in the hoop, just adhere to back of quilt???
