I have been a quilter for several decades now and have met many embroiderers when I have traveled to teach. They always tried to entice me to get into embroidery and I never in a million years thought it was anything I’d enjoy. BUT…once I saw the incredible quilts that could be created by melding embroidery and quilting, I was hooked! I also should say that even though I spend a ton of time quilting and learning about quilting, I was completely naive about this aspect of the craft. I bring this up because when I talk to quilters about machine embroidery applique, they kind of look at me like they have no idea what I’m talking about. Please take a ride along all the blogs in this hop because you’ll be amazed at the cool stuff you can make when you meld embroidery and quilting. Here are some examples: …and even quilted motifs can be done on an embroidery machine: Please stop by and I promise you’ll be amazed at what you see and learn!
