Embroidery fail…

Ok, well, the embroidery for the center of my large Churn Dash was a fail….so far…..

It is just too small but with my hoop I cannot make it any larger (I used the 8 x 8 hoop).

Sooooo, now I’m going to try doing 4 small versions and then join them together as I did when I stitched my Woodland birds – Anita Goodesign wall-hanging.

For those of you wondering, yes, I did try the Floriani Split Wizard but couldn’t get it to work as I had hoped.  I’m thinking that the Wizard isn’t too bright.  No, no…..it COULDN’T be me. 🙂

Churn Dash

Back to the drawing board…..

Churn Dash – Large!

As you know, I’ve finished the small Churn Dash block for our 2nd BOW (Block of the Week) so,  I’m starting on the larger wall-hanging version.  I have sewn together both the top and bottom rows but am holding off on the middle row because I would like to add an embroidery file in the center square.  After I’m satisfied with the embroidery, I will sew all the rows together and begin quilting the wall-hanging with my walking foot.

At the bottom you’ll see a photo of my first embroidery sample being stitched.

PattyAnne’s BOW #2 – Churn Dash Walking Foot Quilting

I love using these pins to baste my quilts rather than the ‘stinky’ spray baste. Click on the image for more details.


Also, I ALWYS wear my Machingers Gloves whether I’m walking foot quilting or free motion quilting. Again, click if you’d like more info.

In this video I’m going to show you how to cut the pieces for your Churn Dash block. If you would like me to send you a PDF of the cutting file (or an embroidery file) shoot me an email or comment below with your email address.
