Making a quilt using the sewing machine with embroidery module
If you like to make quilts and own a sewing machine with an embroidery module, it is nice to combine both. Making appliqué blocks with decorative stitches is fun. By adding stitches and Embellishments you create special blocks.
Instructions in the pattern book
The month of Augustthe mystery quilt project 'Love Notes' by Kimberbell was launched. Get started via an extensive (English) pattern book: there are clear schemes for cutting fabrics via the supplied fabric package. Very handy for cutting everything and storing it in bags before you continue. Cutting everything step by step and ticking off the list, and so on. Do you see in the image above that even the prints of the fabrics are clearly printed?
A complete kit for this project
A complete package with fabrics, embellishments, and descriptions.
Everything neatly in zipper bags
But everything was so well marked, with color codes, clear images, and step-by-step descriptions, that even if you don't find English that easy, it is easy to do. And the cut fabrics were all put in zip-lock bags, with text on it about the block it belonged to, and which row of the quilt it would end up in. We didn't know what that quilt would look like because it was a mystery, which made it quite exciting.
Appliqué via the embroidery machine
Make the blocks with appliqué step by step using the embroidery machine: all designs were on the enclosed CD. It was a matter of transferring to my USB stick and getting started. Create really nice images, as shown above. The heart is made of artificial leather: no problem for the B770QE.
Working with special materials
Appliqué glitter sheets and vinyl
Various effects and colors for different cubes. And take a look at the block above: working with Appliqué Glitter sheets and clear (greenish) vinyl is also no problem for the B770QE and the embroidery module. It remains great to see how everything is nicely processed.
The advantage of these glitter sheets is that they do not stain. Normally you have your hands, your face, and the whole area covered with glitter, but not with this material. It has been properly developed; smooth and easy to process.
The shape of a glass jar
Finally, the shape of a glass jar was embroidered, and I cut everything close to the embroidered edges with appliqué scissors. How special to make these shapes in this way.
Also some patchwork ina quick way
There was also some patchwork to make in a quick way. When you cut all the pieces of fabric to the exact size, you can't go wrong.
Hoop after embroidering
After embroidering I always stretch everything: the fabric is extra tensioned. Sometimes I moisten the fabric a bit, but that is not always necessary. I let the whole thing sit overnight, after which it is beautifully tight the next day.
And so I continued with this quilt, via the Best Computerized Sewing Machines with the embroidery module. Even embroidering stamps, entirely according to the theme 'Love Notes'.
We received new assignments for 5 weeks, So I still have something to do!
The supplier was also so enthusiastic about this project that they purchased additional packages. You can order them through my web shop so that you can also start this fun project.
Another quilt with machine embroidery
Make Yourself At Home by Kimberbell
I myself will continue with this designer: another quilting project 'Make Yourself At Home 'is also so much fun to do - via the thicker workbook with CD you have the opportunity to not only make the main quilt but also 6 other smaller quilts.projects. All with a singer 8060 sewing machine and embroidery machine. The fabric package and the Embellishment Kit can also be ordered separately if you want to use the original materials. But you can also use your fabrics via the pattern book and the enclosed CD with embroidery motifs. Just think how fun this quilt would look in Christmas fabrics!

As soon as my Love Notes quilt is finished, I will start with this project. In this way I will certainly discover many tips and tricks that I would like to pass on to you.
Lots of embroidery and quilting fun!
