Pretty Quilting

I can honestly say I tried numerous times to free motion quilting. Either I'm not very talented or my machines hate me. Which ever the case may be, I'm OK with the fact that I can't free motion quilt.

I can still have quilts with pretty quilting. I can use my high tech tools and my embroidery machine. Yes, that's right. I can purchase quilting designs for my embroidery machine and my machine came with 3. So I will work from those embroidery quilting designs and add to it if I so desire to make pretty quilting.


Can you see where I haven't pulled off the Press n Seal Wrap? I read on the internet that you hoop the Press n Seal and it will hold your quilt. Smart, uh? Yes, it did work.

I can also use my high tech tool to make pretty quilting.
Yes, it is a cardboard circle that I used on my topper. Then I stitch using my guide thing.
Here is another high tech tool I used. Yes, that is painter's tape.

It leaves no residue on the quilt which makes me smile. I only leave the tape on the quilt long enough to get my pattern started and then I pull it off.

Great ideas Cindy. I made an ottoman cover and quilted it on the embroidery machine. I like your tools too. You are always very creative.
