Good Morning!!

I have an embroidery machine, Baby Lock Ellageo, and I have found hundreds of quilt blocks that it can sew out. Has anyone ever used these style of blocks? Any advice on how to use them? Any and all advice is welcome. Thank you in advance for any advice.

Thank You,

Erica

Yes I've used them quite often. To use the stippling ones for actual quilting I think doing the block quilting as you go is a better option as the weight of the quilt drags on the embroidery machine. I also will embroidery blocks just the top for the design and do another method of quilting.

Sewwolf,

I have seen where people have quilted the blocks individually (example top, batting, and back). Then sewn the blocks together. What style of quilting is this?

Thank you,

Erica

Betty Cotton first introduced this method of "Quilting As You Go" and called it "The Cotton Theory". Here is a PDF from America Quilts Creatively using the Cotton Theory.
