Quilt with an Embroidery Machine in 8 Easy Lessons

I’m excited to announce (and give away a copy to one lucky reader) my new book: Quilt with an Embroidery Machine in 8 Easy Lessons.  This book has been the culmination of over 20 years of quilting with an embroidery machine. I’ve done everything from embroidered quilt tops to quilt as you as go to quilting king size quilts on an embroidery machine.  I’ve learned an awful lot on this journey and I’m happy to share it with you on Sewing with Nancy.  You can watch it online at http://wpt.org/SewingWithNancy/ or check your local TV listings to watch on PBS.

This book teaches you several different methods for quilting with an embroidery machine: quilting and appliqueing in one step; custom quilting and allover quilting.  Quilting and appliqueing in one step is a patented process that I designed in 2008.  Since then, I’ve created 16 Stipple Collections, and in this book you’ll find two projects that incorporate that revolutionary technique.

Custom quilting is no doubt the type of quilting that makes your jaw drop at quilt show competitions.  The quilting is designed to specifically enhance and fill a shape (block), applique or area. To be honest, custom quilting is probably best achieved through expert free motion quilting. When custom quilting is done on an embroidery machine, you do not have the ‘freedom’ to move the needle as you do in free motion quilting so the results are not as ‘customized.’  However, custom quilting is how many of us want to finish our tops. I show you how to do it in the Patriotic Pillow and Diamond table runner.

Allover quilting is often the result you get when you ‘quilt by check’. Quilt by check mean you pay someone else to quilt your quilt. When you send your quilt to a longarmer, they select an allover pattern that complements your quilt top unless you have specifically requested (and agreed to pay for) custom quilting.  There are two types of allover quilting: nesting and linking. You’ll learn the difference between the methods with two projects.

You’ll discover three different ways to handle the quilt during the stitching process: furniture you have on hand, the shortE and the Weightless Quilter.  My goal for this book is to help you expand your embroidery skills into the world of quilting and get more out of your machine.  I hope you find quilting with an embroidery machine as rewarding as I do. 

Want to win a copy of Quilt with an Embroidery Machine in 8 Easy Lessons?  Just leave a comment and tell me if have any quilt tops that need to be quilted.  Do you have one, two, three or more?  One lucky winner will be selected to win the book and the accompanying collection of 20 embroidery designs.

      I inherited about 24 quilt tops from my Mother. I try to quilt one a year. I doubt if I will get them all quilted in my life time but I hope get a few done. With this process I might be able to get more finished. Also When I make something I want it to me mine from start to finish.

      I have a queen size top put together when we lived in a motorhome full time. The piecing part was awkward at best but to quilt it with only the dining table for support was not even attempted. Now that we are back into “normal” housing, it’s telling me “finish me!”

    I have 6 quilts ready to be quilted (and another 3 in progress). I have been sending all of my pieced quilts out to be quilted by longarmers (even one custom quilted which costs a lot) but have decided that I want to try to do it for myself now with my embroidery machine since I have seen that it is possible. I did actually do a lap quilt with the embroidery machine but wasn’t completely thrilled with the finished product (I did use the Print & Stick Target Paper which did work very well but I don’t think I did my figuring correctly or something–I was trying to fill in a pieced block with a design and then repeat that in each block; but also had borders and sashings–will have to keep trying.) All of the tops I have ready now are either twin or queen so that is what is making me more leary. I also bought the MQE and have been trying to audition quilting on my blocks that way but it seems like it takes me so long to figure it out or to decide what I want. I guess I just have to get a little more confidence but don’t want to ruin the quilt tops after all the time and effort I have put into them. This book sounds like it would be very helpful for me–I can use all the help I can get! Thanks for the chance to win.

    I recently retired and just finished my first top for a baby/crib size quilt. I thought I’d start small to build up my confidence and experience and now I have the bug to do a larger quilt!! I have an embroidery machine and need to learn how to quilt using it. Winning this book would be such a blessing!

    My first and only bed-sized quilt was started when I was pregnant with my firstborn. Five children later it was never quilted nor bound. I would LOVE to get it out and finish it off this summer!

    I have two baby quilts that need quilting – haven’t got money to take to have them professionally done – but are not sure what I want to do on them. Using my used Elleglante would be a new project – did the embroidery on them using my Ellure (retirement 2004) – would be fun to use either one. would be nice to finish one of them. Thank you. Sally

    Like everyone else I have quilts that need finishing. But I am not sure how my six needle babylock can do it. I am worried about the size of the throat (not sure that is the correct term. My pfaff is too small to cram a quilt through. Embroidery machine has a larger area,but I am afraid of ruining the quilt. I would definitely think twice about putting an antique quilt in the hoop. I have been to a sewing sisters event and have some of your quilt designs I use them on pillows and table runners. I hope you figured it out for large quilts. Would save quite a bit of money.

    I’m in the middle of a move, so I’m not sure how many I have to be quilted. At least 3 or 4. I’ve got a bad back and neck so I gave up my mid-arm machine and frame and decided I must focus on smaller projects. Sigh. But find that free motion quilting on my regular machine is still hard on my spine. I’ve been thinking that embroidery could save me as I really like to finish my quilts myself. Happy to hear there is a way to make this work and would love to win a copy of your book. I gave up golf years ago, and I refuse to give up quilting. I will make this work.

    I am about to start the first of 8-10 baby quilts for future great-grandchildren who I may or may not ever see. My grandchildren are just starting high school, so great-grandchildren are likely a decade or more in the future, but I want to leave this legacy. If I am fortunate enough to get to know them, I can spend my time snuggling them rather than at the sewing and embroidery machine. The designs in this new book would help with the design and quilting of these heirlooms.

      Hi Linda, this book is a much more in-depth look at quilting with an embroidery machine than my Craftsy class. I think you’ll gain valuable knowledge by reading this book.

    My daughter and I took a quilting class expecting to learn how to make a quilt. Sad to say –all they did was make the quilt top and expect us to pay them to quilt it! I refuse to do it by hand nor pay someone else to do them for me! I have a brother PR1000 and know there surely there must be a way to use this wonderful machine to make quilts also. I also have a large king size bed for which I haven’t been able to find a quilt big enough, and would love to make a quilt-as-you-go quilt for it. It must look professional and beautiful (yes I am a perfectionist and love to do it myself :). I am wondering if your book is just what I need.

    I live in the middle of nowhere, so what I have learned comes from your magazine, and Nancy Zieman shows I have 7 plus quilts to do, plus my mother-in-laws. I have 15 grandchildren who have all received baby blankets, but now I need to start on twin bed sized ones. My 8 year old granddaughter has made her 1st chevron quilt, and quilted it herself with some advice from this grandma (to much she would say). 14 more quilts to go, and 8 more granddaughters to get sewing, so your book would be a great help.

    Is it possible to quilt a queen or king size with an embroidery machine? I have a Bernina Artista 200.

    I have 4 twin size quilts and 6 kingsize quilts that need to be quilted right this minute…along with several works in prgoress….would be much simpler if I could do the whole process myself 🙁

    Eileen, thank you for sharing the details for your book – it sounds like a great option, and I am also guilty of having some unfinished quilts in the cupboard, so information on how I can best use my embroidery machine to finish them off will definitely be appreciated. Thanks!
