    Hello from SewCalGal

    Hello,

    This is SewCalGal. I'm a quilting, sewing, and embroidery enthusiast who enjoys researching and sharing insights on my blog (www.sewcalgal.blogspot.com). I'm joining this forum for fun and inspiration.

    Today, I'm working on a machine embroidery/quilting project. I tend to lean towards doing more machine embroidery projects when my sewing room is a mess. I have a bad habit of going to a quilt class, or retreat, and when I return home I just dump everything in the middle of my sewing room, with the excuse of being too tired to put it away. So, I feel like I'm accomplishing something when I'm doing machine embroidery and organizing my sewing room.

    This past week I took a two day free-motion quilting class with the famous Paula Reid. Great class and she is a super teacher. I highly recommend her as a teacher, if you ever have a chance.

    A great big welcome to you - so glad you joined us. We have quite a few women here who do machine embroidery. I have a Designer Diamond.

      Welcome to the forum. I don't have an embroidery machine but I piece quilts and have them machine quilted. Occasionally I will machine quilt a small project myself. If you are looking for inspiration you will find it here. Visit often....

          Hi there, thought I would pester for any tips on a quilt. Making a quilt for daughter and son in law. Had people sign squares which I am now embroidering and then I will put it all together in a quilt. Any tips on the embroidery so that it will look good? thanks!

                  Hello SewCalGirl! Welcome to the forum. I'm assuming from your username that you're from California?? Where are you located? I originate from San Diego. Anyway, welcome again and we hope you enjoy the forum.

                    I assume you're hand embroidering them? Take tiny stitches and use a hoop to keep the fabric from bunching up.
