    I do not own either of these machines. Is there a different method for Bernina? I have 2 of the monster hoops (1large 1 small)

      Cindy, you can use any machine that can accommodate a 7″ square design. In the downloadable materials, you’ll find the designs in EXP format – perfect for your Bernina machine.

    Looking forward to doing this as soon as I find my embroidery unit (moved into temporary digs and haven’t dug everything out yet).

    My largest baby lock hoop is 10 1/4″ x 6 1/4.” Is there any way I can make this BOM quilt using it?

    I would love to see an instructional video on making a block without the specialty hoops and software. An example would include downloading the file in EXP format (as an example), loading the Hoop, and then stitching it out. I love the quilt, but some of the instructions are confusing when you don’t have the monster hoop, etc. Thank you.
