Quilt with an Embroidery Machine in 8 Easy Lessons by Nancy Zieman and Eileen Roche on Sewing With Nancy

The art of quilting often combines techniques. Traditional quilts are frequently appliquéd, then pieced, and finally all the layers are quilted. If you have an embroidery machine, you can streamline the processes with the touch of a button—the brainchild of Nancy Zieman’s guest Eileen Roche. The quilting technique is practically hands free! Watch as Eileen shares the magic in quilting on part-one of Quilt with an Embroidery Machine in 8 Easy Lessons on this Sewing With Nancy series.

Easily learn the machine embroidery quilting process. There’s no reason to be intimidated. This easy process is presented from a beginner’s perspective and is broken down into eight easy lessons, including many useful tips and techniques for professional results.

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

 

A machine that’s commonly used to create embroidery designs, is equally a quilting machine. Let’s start with a simple table topper, which features what at first glance is a complicated appliqué. You’ll soon see that the process is perfect for the novice quilter.

Prepare Quilt Sandwich

Like any method of quilting, we first must prepare a quilt sandwich. The quilt sandwich refers to the top, batting, and backing layers of the project. Eileen will show us how easy it is to prepare your sandwich for in-the-hoop quilting on this episode.

Embroidered Appliqué Designs

In the traditional appliquéd quilt process, you’ll create your project using these steps (in order):

    1. Appliqué
    2. Piece
    3. Quilt
In this Sewing With Nancy featured program, Eileen shares the embroidered appliqué quilt process and explains how the steps are similar to traditional quilting, yet are executed quite differently. It’s easy once you watch Eileen’s methods on Quilt with an Embroidery Machine in 8 Easy Lessons Part One.

On the design CD included in the new Quilt with an Embroidery Machine in 8 Easy Lessons book, you’ll have the option to create projects in a variety of sizes including 6″, 7″, or 8″ quilt blocks. Choose a size that best suits your project dimensions.

Her comment is: I didn’t start sewing until 7 years ago but was well-acquainted with who Nancy Zieman was and what she accomplished. My mom met Nancy at an event in Florida a number of years ago and asked her to autograph her sewing A-Z book for me – as a new “sewist.” My husband gave me Nancy’s Seams Unlikely for Christmas and I truly enjoyed Nancy’s story. I would love “The Rest of the Story.” –

Happy Quilting!

    I would love to win this book and learn the techniques presented in the Quilt with an Embroidery Machine book by Nancy.

    Using an embroidery machine to quilt is really capitalizing on what this machine has to offer. This book by Nancy deconstructs the process to make construction easier and would be a geat tool to have.

  • Kelly S

    As a quilter for over 30 years I enjoy how the construction and quilting process has evolved. I also always enjoy learning new methods. Nancy has been my best resource and teacher in learning all things related to sewing, machine embroidery and quilting.

    I would like to learn how to quilt with my embroidery machine. The book would help me to do just that.

    I absolutely love to quilt and embroider. I have sensory neuropathy in my hands and have lost most of the feeling in them which makes it harder to do finger work. I have been trying to find ways to still be able to quilt and this is one of the ways that allow me to do both.

    I have the embroidery module for my sewing machine. But it intimidates me such that I have not worked up the courage to work with it. I love many different quilt techniques. Maybe it’s time to add one more to my repertoire!

  • Clovis

    I have so many quilt tops just waiting to be quilted. I would love to win this book to quilt all those quilt tops and gift them to my family and make donation quilts for children in Ronald McDonald House. Thanks for the opportunity!

    I have followed Nancy for years and would love to have this book. My husband gave me a new embroidery /quilting machine 3 yrs ago but I started working full time and have never used it. Still using my old ones. But now I have some free time and I’m a little nervous about using the new one. Could really use some help. Appreciate all she did for those of us who love to sew.

    Quilting with an embroidery make would be so much fun and such a time saver. I would love to read Nancy’s story about her life. She was truly a remarkable woman.

    I just received a new Bernina 880 B that does everything but the dishes. I have always been a Janome gal but just got sold on the Highest grade Bernina. I would love to win an Embroidery book that shows how to quilt as I’m sure it will make my heart sing to be able to quilt several quilts on this machine. I do a lot of charity quilts and I’m sure I will be able to make several more as soon as I learn to quilt using my embroidery module.

    I would love to learn more about using my embroidery machine. I just got a new machine after using my old machine for decades. I learned to sew watching Sewing with Nancy at my grandmother’s fabric store.

    I have an embroidery machine that I would love to learn how to quilt with it…because I am still trying to make a quilt, this book by Nancy Zieman, Quilt with an Embroidery Machine in 8 Easy Lessons Book would be wonderful since DIME HAS NOW DISCONTINUED THEIR MAGAZINE. I looked up the item and I was wondering if the CD (Embroidery Designs CD) will come with the book. That would be great because I learn better by watching and doing hands on. Thank you for letting me participate in this contest.

    I did this in one of the classes that was offered when I bought my embroidery machine but haven’t done it since. This book would help me to get some quilts made for giving. Thank you for the chance to win QUILT WITH AN EMBROIDERY MACHINE IN 8 EASY LESSONS.

    I would love to win this book. I have the Baby Lock Aventura sewing machine and would love to learn to do quilting on it. I have watched Nancy for years on PBS TV and have several of her sewing guides. I still watch her on PBS reruns on Saturdays. She has been such an inspiration to me in my sewing and always will be.

    Nancy,
    What size embroidery hoop is required to use your method. I won an embroidery module. I am finding out my machine does not allow me to increase size of hoop but so large. I can’t use a mega or magnetic hoop. I wish I knew this information before opening the box.

      • Coleen
        January 29, 2020

        Eileen,
        Thanks for your quick response. Have a great day.

    I have a new machine and would love to have the information in this book. I’m excited about quilting my own quilts instead of sending them to a long-armer.
