My new collection of quilting designs for embroidery sewing machines is moving along very quickly. Here are some of the stitched out samples, including two large Mega Hoop designs, small designs, borders, and even some contemporary fun things. Above, my own version of the large design done free motion in the center of a new wall quilt that will showcase the designs like the chickadee, sleeping cat, fronds, rabbit in feathers, formal medallion, pod flower, angel wings, and more.
I've been "off the grid" for two weeks, traveling to help with a family emergency, but am home now and working on my quilt. One thing I really love about quilting is it helps ease anxiety and gives you a peaceful time to let your mind calm, your body concentrate on the task at hand.
Oliver is glad to see me back home, back in routine, at my machine and doing all my typical daily things.
I'll try and check the comments and questions you have left and answer all of them, in the posts where you commented.
It's Quilt Market right now so many exciting things are happening in quilting. I will have a few new products for my June session at Empty Spools (Asilomar) coming up, and I've got some new ideas for this class to try.
Hope your spring is wonderful, and busy, and full of flowers and sun.
Keep quilting, your work gets better every day! Diane
I have two collections of quilting designs for your home machine's hoop embroidery system! Quilting Fancy and Quilting Whimsy are available at Embroidery Online., under the licensed artists' collections.
I have two books about machine quilting on your home sewing machine, published by AQS.
Here is my first book, giving you an overall guide to quilting on your home machine. It helps talk quilters down from the ledge, jump in and quilt their tops successfully. Soon to be "out of print" - thanks for keeping it alive for so long.
