I Dared To Enter on October 24, 2017…

I dared to enter… LOL
and then I broke my wrist bone…
but I am able to show you a little of
what I was doing
because I had already started my project.
So come on in, and see what
I’ve been up to…

I wanted to do something that I hadn’t really tried before. I have done Free Motion manually on my sewing machine, but I’ve never done it in the hoop of an embroidery machine. I could easily have just purchased some designs but decided to give it a try doing my own. So here is my take on this technique.

I finished 8 of the 9 blocks before I broke my wrist, and 8 are what I have stitched out. I am planning to put them together to make a small tablecloth, but via the quilt in a hoop method.

I am the kind of embroiderer who doesn’t like to put everything into the hoop. You could only do this technique with a quilt in the hoop technique because you are traditionally working with smaller blocks. These blocks will be 8-inches when they are cut to size.

First, my backing fabric is the only thing that goes into the hoop.

Believe it or not, the batting (in this case I used fleece) went on top of the hoop. Sorry about the picture.

and then you’d add your block on the top, this can be pieced, but in my case, I want to create a flat look so I am going for a spider web fabric.

Then you just put your hoop in the machine and off you go stitching the design.

Clicking The Images will show you the various designs.

Can you see the scenes?

I’ve made one for you in a size every embroidery machine should have.
