“Weak Moment” Purchase

I have always admired machine embroidered items at craft shows or events.  My decision to include an Embroidery Machine to my sewing room was during a weak moment.  I had been tossing around the idea of purchasing a machine and doing all the research, but never really making the decision to purchase one.  One day I went to the local Sewing/Vacumm Store that carries a variety of threaded machines and supplies.  I believe I just needed to purchase some bobbins for my sewing machine and managed to come home with an Embroidery Machine…I think I forgot the bobbins! 

Please enjoy the slideshow of various embroidered pieces I have made since my “weak moment” purchase.

CyHr Quilt

This quilt was pieced and quilted by me for a Gentleman’s couch quilt.  He is an outdoorsman so the choice of earth tone colors worked well in the Log Cabin pattern.  It was my first quilt using minkee fabric for the backing and I look forward to doing more.  This quilt turned out wonderfully and will be a joy to snuggle up in.

Dragonfly Quilt

The combination of two block styles create the chained star pattern.  I used a stencil to quilt the dragonfly in the center of each star and various lines to complete the quilting.  The entire quilt from start to finish was done on a standard sewing machine.
