Quilt With An Embroidery Machine in 8 Easy Lessons by Eileen Roche as Seen on Sewing With Nancy with Nancy Zieman

If you own an embroidery machine, most likely you’ve added monograms to towels or a cute design to baby clothes. But, did you ever think that your embroidery machine’s hidden talent was to quilt layers of fabric with remarkable finesse? Welcome back embroidery and quilting expert Eileen Roche, who will show you how to double the use of your embroidery machine.

Watch as Eileen shares the magic in quilting on part two of Quilt with an Embroidery Machine in 8 Easy Lessons on Sewing With Nancy. If you missed part one, last week, you can always watch it online at NancyZieman.com.

Quilted Shapes

Embroidery isn’t limited to a design created by thread-dense stitches. Swirls or geometric shapes can also be embroidered. For example, the squares, circles, and hexagons as featured in Eileen’s sampler pillow, can easily be quilted with an embroidery machine. The end result is the appearance of stitching that was done by hand or with a long-arm quilting machine.

Use the DIME (Designs in Machine Embroidery) template to align shapes under the embroidery machine. See how on today’s featured episode of Sewing With Nancy.

Select a design to fit the shape and let your embroidery machine do the work of a computerized longarm. You’ll be amazed with the simplicity and thrilled with the results.

All-Over Quilting Designs

If you’ve pieced a quilt top but have never taken the time to quilt all the layers together, Eileen’s all-over quilting with an embroidery machine technique is for you. The quilt sandwich is hooped section by section. Templates are used for perfect placement and then the stitching begins with the touch of a button.

Start by drawing a grid over the quilt top using a water-soluble pen. Eileen and Nancy demonstrate how easy it is to quilt in-the-hoop: one shape at a time, one row at a time. We then nestle the subsequent row, stitch, and finish. Watch all the steps to finishing this quilt on Quilt with an Embroidery Machine in 8 Easy LessonsPart Two.

Continuous Line Quilting

If you’re a quilter first, embroiderer second, you no-doubt appreciate the look of quilts that have been stitched with a continuous design. If your machine has an embroidery unit, you can accomplish the same look that is generally reserved for long-arm quilters. It’s rather magical.

  • Use templates to determine placement within the hoop. Eileen shares how on today’s Sewing With Nancy episode.

    I had so much fun taping this series with Nancy! It brings back many warm memories. I miss my friend everyday but I’m so glad everyone still has access to her shows – they are wealth of information. She taught America how to sew!

    Having a quilt machine quilted can be quite expensive. This technique looks like it could be fun and a lot easier in the pocketbook!

    These books keep the legacy of Nancy’s simplified sewing techniques alive! She was the Queen of giving confidence to any level of sewist and giving us the tools to try anything! The poeple she had on her show were also Very creative- think out of the box- individuals. Thank you to All of them and the Nancy Team for keeping creativity alive and well!

    I have an older embroidery machine that is not being utilized to it’s fullest. I believe this book will help me get over my “fear” of using it!!

  • Barbara H. A.

    I love the idea of utilizing the embroidery feature of my sewing machine! Does it require a specific model for the special paper. It would be so helpful if that information was shared with us. We all miss Nancy; she was timeless.

    When I was around 12 years old back in the 80s, I remember seeing Nancy’s show for the first time. I was fascinated by how easy she made everything look and by her confidence at the machine. I grew up watching my grandmother, grandfather, and my mother sew, and then I started learning. Nancy and her guests were a big part of my education, and the piecing and quilting fascinated me. I likened the process to artists creating paintings, but they were creating art with fabric. 35 years later, I still refer to Nancy’s episodes when I need a refresher. I’m just learning to quilt with my embroidery machine, and this looks like a great resource.

    I’ve been so thankful for Nancy and her shows over the years. She has taught me so many techniques and given me so much confidence in my sewing experiences.
    Now that I’ve gotten a sewing/embroidery machine, I’m thrilled to learn that I can learn to “long-arm” quilting.

  • Sue Camino

    I recently retired and finally will have the time to learn everything there is to learn about quilting. My fabrics have been purchased over the years so I am ready to begin a new adventure. This book would be a great resource !!

  • Chris

    There’s so much I’d love to learn about embroidery quilting–how to free-motion, the best way to hoop a quilt sandwich, how to applique on a quilt, how to do continuous line quilting! This sounds like an amazing resource written in both Nancy’s and Eileen’s ‘teachable’ style.

  • Patricia Gabhart

    With a room filled with fabric, both new and scraps. I’m always looking for ways to make good use of them. Learning new techniques with the embroidery machine is a wonderful experience. I’ve made many traditional quilts but having watched Nancy and Eileen’s show on embroidering in the hoop was inspiring and gave me a new purpose for my fabric stash!

    I remember well where I was when I heard the news that Nancy had passed. I spent many Saturday mornings watching her show on PBS, sometimes taking notes (this was before internet and devices that one could watch over and over again (YouTube). I never had a family member who was a sewist, so all I learned was from books and Nancy’s show. I recently purchased an embroidery machine and would love to use it to it’s fullest potential. Thank you for carrying on Nancy’s program.

    As some of the others have stated, I am also not very happy that Nancy’s legacy continues.

    I tried to use my embroidery machine to quilt a doll quilt, but the design I chose didn’t look nice when it was finished. I would like to try using my embroidery machine to quilt another doll quilt with a more suitable design. The information in the Sewing with Nancy program will hopefully help me produce a better quilt this time.

    My daughter has an embroidery machine. Neither of us know how to use it. I have a quilt top I would love to try it on. I think this might help me get over my fear of trying it. It takes me so long to finish a project and I have several quilts to make. I also miss your TV show very much. It used to be on PBS but I no longer get those channels.
