Quilt With An Embroidery Machine in 8 Easy Lessons by Eileen Roche as Seen on Sewing With Nancy with Nancy Zieman

February is National Embroidery Month!

If you own an embroidery machine, most likely you’ve added monograms to towels or a cute design to baby clothes. But, did you ever think that your embroidery machine’s hidden talent is to quilt layers of fabric with remarkable finesse? Welcome back embroidery and quilting expert Eileen Roche, who will show you how to double the use of your embroidery machine.

Watch as Eileen shares the magic in quilting on part two of Quilt with an Embroidery Machine in 8 Easy Lessons on this brand new Sewing With Nancy series. If you missed part one, last week, you can always watch it online at NancyZieman.com.

Quilted Shapes

Embroidery isn’t limited to a design created by thread-dense stitches. Swirls or geometric shapes can also be embroidered. For example, the squares, circles, and hexagons as featured in Eileen’s sampler pillow, can easily be quilted with an embroidery machine. The end result is the appearance of stitching that was done by hand or with a long-arm quilting machine.

Use the DIME (Designs in Machine Embroidery) template to align shapes under the embroidery machine. See how on today’s new episode of Sewing With Nancy.

All-Over Quilting Designs

If you’ve pieced a quilt top but have never taken the time to quilt all the layers together, Eileen’s all-over quilting with an embroidery machine technique is for you. The quilt sandwich is hooped section by section. Templates are used for perfect placement and then the stitching begins with the touch of a button.

Start by drawing a grid over the quilt top using a water-soluble pen. Eileen and I demonstrate how easy it is to quilt in-the-hoop: one shape at a time, one row at a time. We then nestle the subsequent row, stitch, and finish. Watch all the steps to finishing this quilt on Quilt with an Embroidery Machine in 8 Easy Lessons—Part Two.

Continuous Line Quilting

If you’re a quilter first, embroiderer second, you no-doubt appreciate the look of quilts that have been stitched with a continuous design. If your machine has an embroidery unit, you can accomplish the same look that is generally reserved for long-arm quilters. It’s rather magical.

  • Use templates to determine placement within the hoop. Eileen shares how on today’s Sewing With Nancy episode.
