    Note to self.....

    Dear Pat,
    Learn how the embroidery part of your sewing machine works because you can do elaborate sections of quilting on your quilts!!!!

            I use mine for quilting, it's great! I have many many quilting designs and I use my super strong magnetic hoop. Usually SID and then embroider a design in the blocks that coordinate with the fabrics theme. I'm very pleased with it. With this new magnetic hoop it holds my quilt sandwich securely, like strong, and I stitch and then advance the quilt, etc.
            Try it, you'll love it!!
            Quilting is a gift I give myself.

                Which machine do you have? I have that hoop for my Pfaff but haven't tried it with a big quilt sandwich. Would love to know how.

                  I would love to know what machines you use for this, too. I have thought about an embroidery machine but, truth is, anything that has anything to do with a computer scares the bejeebers out of me.

                      An embroidery machine has been on my wish list for years.
                      My singer has a lot of specialty designs, but very limited on the ability to adjust any of them. Most come out way too compact for my tastes. I did play with it a bit when quilting my grandson's quilt recently. My daughter loved it.

                        My friend does machine embroidery and takes classes at the shop where she bought her machine....maybe your dealer has something like that. I don't do machine embroidery and don't even want to, but I think it is beautiful and I REALLY applaud you who learn to do it!!!!!

                              Craftsy has some great information on just this subject

                              Embroidered Quilt Pattens for Spring

                              they also have a course dedicated to the topic---I am considering it.
