How to baste fabric in preparation for machine embroidery from Quilt Social

I’m back with the HUSQVARNA VIKING Designer Brilliance 80.

Yesterday I assembled the fabrics and supplies for the Inspira sewing machine cover. I also cut and stabilized the outer pieces. Today, it’s all about the embroidery.

You know what that means – YES – I have to position the embroidery designs exactly where I want them on the fabric pieces. This takes a little bit of finesse. But with a great tool on the Designer Brilliance 80 called Design Positioning, the task is ...

Using the embroidery features on the Designer Brilliance 80 from Quilt Social

 

Did you like my learning curve yesterday? I explored working with flimsy fabric and the Seam/Overcast Stitch to make gift bags.

It’s the end of the week! I’ll play around with some embroidery and make something from those last two pieces of gold fabric and something exciting happened when I turned on the sewing machine yesterday. I’ll share that with you at the end of the ...
