Quilt With an Embroidery Machine in 8 Easy Lessons Part Two on The Best of Sewing With Nancy
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 Nancy’s friend, and quilting expert Eileen Roche, who will show 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.
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.
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 Roche and Nancy Zieman demonstrate how easy it is to quilt in-the-hoop: one shape at a time, one row at a time. They 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 Lessons—Part Two.
Continuous Line Quilting
If you’re a quilter first, embroiderer second, you’ll 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.
Eileen and Nancy showcase how this continuous line quilting design can work on a variety of different sized projects.
