We are a family of Machine Embroidery Designers.

We live to design and play with machine embroidery designs, techniques, methods and be slaves to our furbabies. They just love watching us designing and attacking threads. Most of all we are on  a mission to help people fearlessly express their creativity in machine embroidery and multi media all at affordable prices. When we are not digitizing or making something we are hunting down the next great idea to design.

Latte Candlewick Quilt Blocks

Latte Candlewick Quilt Blocks

Today we are going to make Quilt Blocks in lovely “coffee” shades! I made my squares in cream coloured poly-cotton. There are 12 different picture squares as well as an accent square. I stitched out the accent square 4 times – 1 for each corner – to complete my wall-quilt. You can make your quilt much bigger by stitching out more accent blocks and placing them between your picture blocks. Very lovely! The blocks don’t take long to stitch out with only a few colour changes yet creating a lovely end result. I used the “Quilt As You Go” Method to complete my quilt.

Lace Earings. The World’s Easiest!

Lace Earings. The World’s Easiest!

Lace Earings. The World's Easiest!

Today we are going to make the “world’s easiest Lace Earings!” Each design is small and measures approx. from just over an inch to 1.75 inch/3cm to 4.5cm. I have included colour stops for trimming any little “jump stitches” where necessary. However, only 1 colour is used throughout. Your bobbin thread matches the top thread. I used machine embroidery thread – Marathon – and it works very well. From your local craft shop you will need to get jump rings to make drop earrings (optional) and earring hooks. You will also need some small imitation pearls and a glue gun for gluing on the pearls.

ITH Sweet-Pea QAYG Quilt Blocks

Today we are going to make ITH Sweet-Pea QAYG Quilt Blocks. These are lovely, easy to make quilt blocks. The blocks are 7″x7″ square so cut your fabric and batting 2″ larger all round. This will give you extra fabric to work with to complete your project. The running stitches edging the square keep the fabric taut while embroidering and are very easy to remove when the square is completed. I have also included an Accent Block which is only quilted should you want a plain block to complete your project:)

Today we are going to make a pair of Fall Time Oven Mitts for the 6″x10″/150mmx250mm Hoop. Each Mitt is done in 2 hoopings, an upper-side and an under-side, which are then stitched together by machine to complete. This is an easy pattern and stitches out quickly. All the fabric used is poly-cotton with a heat-proof batting.
