Ede to edge quilting on an embroidery machine.

Yes, it can be done and it is not that hard, especially if you have a machine with a large hoop. Even with smaller hoops it is possible, but will require many rehoopings and are better suited to small projects.

QE-15 Windblown Leaves – Free design – example of 2 repeats stitched on a Bernina 780.

I have at the moment 15 designs on my website that can be quilted with an embroidery machine and one of them, QE-15 Windblown Leaves is a free design for you to try out. To help you get started I have written up the steps I followed and put them in a PDF, Quilting with Embroidery Machine that you can download by clicking on the file name. As this is a PDF document you should be able to print it out. It will take 3 pages.

These steps apply to the Bernina 780, but other machines most likely follow similar steps.

More designs to follow in the future. Don’t forget I also have a series of block designs available.

  1. I purchased your Famer’s Wife quilt blocks. I wanted to see how they would stitch out on my embroidery machine. They were fabulous. I love the fact that I can decide how I want to stitch these designs out. Some projects are small and rather than load the longarm I just load the hoop of my embroidery machine. Eva McCormack


  2. Thank you Eva. I’m glad you like the designs. Converting them to embroidery designs is a good idea and I am still planning on doing that when I have the time. A lot of the blocks are traditional blocks and useful even for someone who is not making a Farmer’s Wife quilt.
