This week’s assignment:

The dog days of summer are well under way!  It’s the perfect time to stay out of the heat and spend a little extra time in your sewing room!  Tell us about the embroidery project you are currently working on (or are about to start).  Post your comment for a chance to win a $25 shopping spree to the Designs in Machine Embroidery website.

The winners of last week’s assignment answered the following question:

What colors would you choose if you were designing your own Stipple Bridge Club quilt? One lucky winner will be randomly chosen to win a Stipple Bridge Club!

The winner is:
Judy Wentz

“I would use a pale yellow or peach for the background of the blocks with purple thread for the background.  I would also use purple fabric for the setting triangles.  I would use a multicolored print with these colors for the hearts, clubs, spades and diamonds.”

    We are searching for quilting (embroidery) designs to use on a Japanese fan quilt with 12 inch on point blocks. Originally wanted to do sashiko but is daunting to do by hand. Would love love love to get this queen sized bed quilt completed with quilting via embroidery technique.

  • Toni Melton

    I have been working on blocks for an embroidered quilt. It will have a different butterfly on each block. I’ve collected a LOT of butterflies and am now embroidering some and auditioning more to find the final choices.

    • Denise Holguin

      Hi Toni,
      I love butterflies too! What fabric color scheme are you going with?

      I’m not sure if you’re on our Facebook page, but one of our fans posted a butterfly quilt she made… it’s super nice. I’m hoping this link will work:

      If not, stop by our Facebook page, go to our Wall Photos album and look for a quilt made by Jody Tippi Rodarmel.

      You’ll have to share a photo when the quilt is complete! (Or even a work in progress!)

      Happy Stitching!

    TUrning everything into cupcakes in honor of a friend opening a cupcake shop locally. Hopefully the customers will want to purchase some hair clips, banners, coasters, pot holders, and placemats. Needless to say I have been busy busy and my sewing room is not air conditioned!!

    • Denise Holguin

      I love the cupcake theme and what a great idea!

      I happened to come across this post on our Facebook page from our friends at OregonPatchWorks, I’m passing it along to you.. a cute Cake Shop Wall Hanging from Erina’s Designs.

      Hope you’re able to take a break or two to a cooler, well-air conditioned space.

      Best of luck to you and your friend.

    I am currently doing appliqué pink ribbons for a fund raiser for my daughter-in-law’s mother who has cancer in her bones. They are rising money to send her to Hawaii. My sin’s band and a bunch of other bands are doing a benefit concert and they will sell the ribbons. I am also embroidering can kookiness for my daughter’s work golf tournament to raise money for brain cancer. Will embroider a set of towels for the auction also. Last but not least, I am monogramming a set of towels for a wedding present.

    I have my fabrics bought, pre-washed and ready to go for the Stipple Butterfly quilt design that I purchased at a Stitchin Sisters event about 2 years ago. This will be exciting to do, now that I have more time to devote to sewing for the next five months or so. i want to make this a full size quilt, so will need to figure out how to make it larger. Also, I am going to be embroidering (flat) mylar Christmas ornaments to include in my Xmas cards to special friends and family again this year. These were a real hit last year; they are sparkly, easy, economical and fun to do.

  • Pam M

    I am working on an apron for a gift exchange. There will be machine embroidered “baking” type words and phrases, along with kitchen motifs in a sort of scrapbook-like collage over parts of the apron. Was supposed to start it at a sewing day at a friend’s house yesterday but I had packed up everything except my hoop! I was so frustrated when I discovered what I had done. So that’s my weekend task – get the embroideries happening.

    • Denise Holguin

      Hi Pam,
      A gift exchange sounds fun! I can imagine a small fight breaking out because everyone wants your apron! 🙂

      Must have been super frustrating to forget the hoop! I’ve had the same challenge in other areas of my life… going to the gym without gym shoes… going to the office without all my work materials.

      On the bright side you’ll have a fun weekend stitching!

  • Kay

    I’m currently trying to get my sewing room cleaned out, so I can begin (and hopefully finish) my daughter’s first-day-of-kindergarten outfit – 18 more days!!! I have an order of 17 shirts to embroider a Stearman biplane with my dad’s N-number on them. The order should bring me around $600, which I’ve probably already spent on fabric and designs this summer!!!

    • eileenroche

      Hi Kay – love the Stearman t-shirts. My dad had a Stearman for 20 years. My childhood memories are filled of that great airplane and time spent with my Dad. Hope your t-shirts come out beautifully!

    Where do I begin! I have 18 shirts that my son-in-law needs his company name on. I need to restock my inventory of kitchen towels and FSL bells that I embroider for Craft shows that I will be going to, starting in November. I just got a whole lot of material that is just so beautiful from a lady who is helping her sister that has Alzheimers. That material is calling to me for so many different projects. I think an embroidered quilt might be the one that gets the nod…maybe. There are ribbons for so many different illnesses. Do you know whether there is a particular color for Alzheimers?
