Stitching up Madonna

Examples of the Madonna blocks that I plan to inset into my background piece. I am going to cut a "window" in the background and have these units behind each window.

Having fun trying out the new decorative stiches on my machine. I am leaving plenty of space for beading & even an additional row of stitches. Stitches are on taffeta with the raw edge showing against the edge of the image. ~~~Debra

Really nice. Now I'm definitely going to look at new machines.

I was so "pumped" after doing these little blocks! The green zigzag is actually a little leaf. This is just straight from the dial. If I want, I could change all kinds of lengths and widths (give me time) or put 2 designs together (like leaf then dodad) and the machine sets it up correctly. The possibilities are really pretty amazing.

Although the times have changed, the embroidery stitches and techniques have remained the same. Technology has greatly advanced and left the 1880s embroidery machine in the dust. Today's machines can replicate thousands of pattern by just a simple push of a button. Find out more about embroidery supply
