Time to learn something NEW!

I have wanted to use my embroidery machine to do applique, but have been intimidated. Today I found a great tutorial! (I love the internet!)

http://www.sewswell.com/applique_instructions01.html

So, now it is time to look for designs & get inspired on incorporating this form of applique into a quilt. (you can all start wishing me luck now) :)

Off to start another UFO!

I have never had so many as I do now!

I'm familiar with Sew Swell..great designs & be sure to sign up for their newsletter.

Another great embroidery site & my favorite is: emblibrary.com/ Ck. them out..thousands of designs & some great applique ones too.

Have fun.

SewMeow...oh yes, emblibrary is my fave! I have found the hardest part of using the machine is finding the right instructions. Classes are too far away for me (2 hours ONE way), so I was tickled in pink polka dots to find this great explanation!
