I have an embroidery machine and have spent some time looking at Anita Goodesign quilt packs and watched some of their tutorials. It looks like most of the quilts combining embroidery are 'quilt as you go' quilts.

Are there any embroidery quilting enthusiasts here on PR?

Yes I use embroidery in my quilts and wall hangings all the time. I use it to make quilt blocks or use it for the actual quilting. It's easier but to use embroidery in your quilts they don't have to be quilt as you go.

Do you use your embroidery machine to do piecing (for example, the Anita Goodesign 'Foundations' sets are for piecing)?

How do you use the embroidery machine for the actual quilting if you are not doing quilt as you go?

Thank for sharing!!

I use the Jumbo Magna Hoop - they are sold according to the brand and model of EM it will be used with.

There are video tutorials for the product. Click here.

I use all the magnets. And I store them in a clay saucer when not in use.

Well for one I did, this was a wall hanging. I did an embroidery on fabric for the block before joining it to the other pieces. I did another using stipping designs to quilt but it was a quilt as you go. But it was done by rows. I still did blocks and sew them into rows and sew the backing to one side and the batting and quilt top to the other. It's hard to explain. I saw Nancy Zieman do it. For the first row you do a regular quilt sandwich and then go from there. The easier way to to quilt as you go so you won't have the drag of a big quilt on the machine it might affect the design. I also did a flannel quilt for my dd. It was paper pieced but in the cent was room for 4 x 4 designs that I picked that had to do with her life.

Loved the one with the wildlife. Good idea for my sister and brother in law. They would love one like that, only smaller. No, can't see the stitching. Is there any way to enlarge the photo for us?

I am a Quilter at heart. I love to play with fabrics, patterns and colors. Recently I have discovered I enjoy doing applique. I love making pictures. Using a sewing machine is much easier than counted cross stitch or oil painting for me. I enjoy landscape quilting as well. I am working on my first applique project in the spring of 2014.

I need a new camera. I have one on my phone but I need the wire to transfer and have gotten around to getting one. I really want another camera.

I use embroidery all the time in my quilts.
I cut the square larger than the finished size. Then I embroider the square and then assemble it in the quilt.
Here is a picture of my pink geranium quilt. http://www.quiltandcraftshow.com/uncategorized/pink-geranium-embroidery-quilt/
If you click on the picture, you can see it up close.
