Something for the Die Hard Machine Quilters

Sometimes, you guys make me chuckle.  Since I put up that first post about learning machine embroidered applique, I have received 2 very distinct kinds of emails:

1.  Emails from folks who know how to machine embroider who all say “Go for it, you’ll love this and you have no idea what a great adventure you’re beginning!” and

2.  Emails from folks who are die hard machine quilters who say “Come back to our side; we’ve lost you forever!”

Honestly, I’m not going anywhere!  But, I feel like maybe I’ve let my machine quilting buddies down, so to prove I’m still a free motion quilter at heart, here are some photos of some new quilting designs I’ve been playing with:

(Although the design above looks very similar to “Plumify It,” it’s different!)

See…I told you I’d be posting a lot this week!

    Love those designs, beautiful ideas for a quilt.
    I like all types of quilting, so fun to see what you do and be inspired to try new things.

    I like these new designs. A new video in the making?

  6. Martha Ginn Says:

    Patsy, These are wonderful. I especially like the first one–reminds me of what I call the “Igloo” that I’ve tried unsuccessfully to master. Yours is a variation, going to a central point, which inspires me. Thanks for the designs!

  7. Sally Says:

    Oh–thank goodness. Great designs.
