Embroidery and Fabric Craft Projects

I absolutely love my Bernina 440QEE. I have had it about two years now. It sews, it quilts, it free-motion quilts, and the best part is that it also embroiders. I can easily hook it up to my computer modify or create embroidery designs and then stitch away!! Here are some of my embroidery projects:

The two bear embroidery projects were stitched and then sewn into pillows.  I purchase one of the designs from the Anita Goodesigns "Lodge" collection.  The other was found on an embroidery design website where I am a subscriber.

The pink dogwood and hummingbird were stitched onto a denim shirt.  I stitched these same designs onto a fleece jacket for my mom.

The penguin and snowflake designs were stitched onto a fluffy, fleece jacket.  These were some recent snow day projects!!

As a teacher, I love the snowman and snow day design above.  I stitched this one onto a comfy fleece sweatshirt.......perfect to keep me warm on another snow day!!

This little penguin was my first ever embroidery project.  I stitched him onto a white fleece jacket.  He came from the Bernina library.

The bear, deer, and hunting designs were stitched out for my dear husband.....maybe if he has these close to his heart he'll leave the real ones alone!!!

I've just started to learn to sew and quilt. I've done a few small "lap" quilts and blankets. Below is some of my "beginner" work:

The images above are from my first quilting project. I decided the long straight strips would be easiest to practice on. I bought the fabric in a kit from my favorite sewing machine store: Gina's Bernina in Knoxville.

I found this wonderful wildlife panel (above) on Ebay. I add some nature themed border material that I purchased at Katie's Fabrics in Englewood. I actually quilted this top to a nice and warm fleece throw.

This deer panel was easy to quilt as the fabric already had that "pieced" look. As soon as I got this one finished my husband staked his claim!!
