Crafty Birds – Machine Embroidery

Crafty Little Birds Embroidery Design from Urban Threads

It’s time for a new project bag.

The design is from Urban Threads.

I am using calico as a stabiliser, which might prove to be too flimsy, and I am floating the fabric after attaching it using a basting spray.

I’m using a Metafil needle (size 12, Klasse), which is fabulous no thread breakages yet.

The Stitching Out process

I have slowed my machine down to 500spm, so its going to be a long process (102 minutes of just stitching) and I want to make two.

Flying Geese Cushion

I’ve been busy (if not actively blogging) working on my quilt blocks. Above is a new flying geese block (which you can find here). I am going to make this sample into a cushion cover (hence the straight line quilting).

Once I have finished my block designs – I will write a tutorial – I’m working on an hour glass design at the moment.

The fabric is from here.

Free Machine Embroidery Design – Foundation Pieced Pictureframe block

I made this block using my embroidery machine – there are instructions on this page on how to use an embroidery machine for foundation piecing. Here is the design – it’s free to use, but don’t sell the design.


NOTE: The font is not included in the download just the quilt block. Also, it is in jef (janome) format. I’m happy to provide other formats just let me know what you need.
