Applique Collections

Applique is a novel concept that has been sewn in machine embroidery for a long time. I prefer it for large areas instead of flat solid fills. Plus the wide range of fabrics that can be used, esp the almost solid fabrics with their various shades and minor prints, adds a special touch to the design you can’t get with machine embroidery thread alone.

Some applique designs are quite ornate as the Applique Elegance Collection.

With some minor variations it follows something like this:
1. Sew the outline of the applique shape onto the background fabric
2. Lay the applique fabric over that area
3. Sew the tack down stitches that apply the fabric to the background fabric
4. Take the hoop off the machine – Don’t take the fabric out of the hoop
5. Trim the excess applique fabric from around the outside of the stitching
6. Return the hoop to the machine
7. Sew the details on top of the applique fabric
8. Sew the finishing stitches around the raw edges of the applique fabric – usually satin stitching.

Applique is the perfect choice for towels and other fabrics with a pile (ie. velour, velveteen, corduroy). The applique fabric prevents the pile from coming up through the machine embroidery stitching and creates a flat smooth surface for the design to be sewn.

Some applique designs are quite elegant as the floral design in the Spring Quilt Banner.

If you have not sewn applique before, don’t be afraid to try it in your embroidery hoop. I think you will be pleasantly surprised.

Quilts

I’m a long time quilter (~1975) so its my natural tendency to create quilt designs. I have been able to divide some of them into categories all their own. Visit the Outdoor Quilts page to see some of these quilts. Also the Hoop N’ Quilt page for this category quilts.

I made small quilts or Quilt Banners my husband calls them, to hang on the front door instead of wreaths which are so difficult to store. More about them on the Quilt Banners page

Applique Quilts are relatively quick to make since the addition of fabric makes for less stitching to create a wow project of any type. This is a table runner I made to protect a table that gets a lot of use.

But there are so many that fall under simply Quilts. I wish I could add a photo of each one here but you’ll get more by clicking on one of the Other Quilt Projects.

One of the many favorites of these is the Trapunto Flowers

Florals

Floral embroidery is an ancient obsession. I think you will agree when I say that obsession still lives today.  My machine embroidery floral designs range from simple to complex, from small to extra large. There is something for everyone.

They are a mainstain among machine embroidery. Everyone loves flowers and can never get enough of them. I’m one of those people. What’s more, florals are so versatile you will find them in many categories and variations.

  • Quilt Designs – indoor and outdoor
  • Quilting Designs aka “Quiltering” designs
  • Fringe Designs
  • Cutwork Designs
  • Trapunto Designs
  • Hardanger Designs

And the list goes on…

When it comes to florals the sky’s the limit…
