Easter is On It’s Way!

With Easter coming, I know there are those of you who are planning some wonderful Easter Frocks that you will be sewingMachine Embroidery is a wonderful way to add beautiful detail to any out fit.

In the spring issue of Sew Beautiful Magazine, I was asked to create a sweet little dress for an article to be in the magazine.  Sew Beautiful Magazine is found in any store with a magazine rack and also in specialty shops  for heirloom embroidery.They also wanted me to use designs from my “Baby Chicks n Bows design CD.    I have not received permission to share the photos from the magazine with you, but I found a single shot of the little dress that I must have taken before I shipped it off that I can share.

Below is another picture of a sample I made from a dress blank from All About Blanks.  She has some wonderful things to add  embroidery to without the fuss of construction, if that just isn’t your thing.

These  sweet little designs are also wonderful for little boys.

What a lot of people don’t understand about the CD,  is there are designs included that will make beautiful quilt blocks.  The quilting designs for the blocks are also included on the CD, so after the quilt top is put together, you can hoop the quilt top, batting and backing, center the quilting design over the block,  and actually quilt your quilt with your embroidery machine.  It really is not as difficult as you might think.

Here are a few of those block designs and some have their quilting designs applied.

There are also instructions for the shadow applique technique that some what gives the appearance of hand sewn shadow applique embroidery.  You will find the instructions as well for the quilt pictured on the CD cover.

If you’d like to purchase these designs as a set or individually, click here.
