|Monogram Quilt Label Design for Sarah|
|Print Fabric Rejected!|
By the way, both of the images in this post are screen shots from my Bernina Designer Plus embroidery software, version 6. I imported fabric photos into my design software so I could "preview" the embroidered label in different thread colors against the print background. That's a very handy feature!
Here's what the design looks like with a plain white grid background:
I purchased the Tween monogram design from Embroidery Arts, including the circular scroll design, and then I stretched, rotated and aligned the monogram letters in my software program. The "stitched with love" lettering is a True Type font from my PC that my software automatically converts to embroidery. This design is going to be my first time using the Jumbo Hoop for my new sewing machine.
Hopefully I can embroider the center block this evening, assemble the blocks with sashing and add borders tomorrow, and then layer and quilt it on Friday. Then the last step is to serge the outer edges of the quilt and finish it off with satin binding, and that will be either Friday or Saturday. Talk about down to the wire -- the birthday is SUNDAY, and I still have to wrap and ship this quilt to New Jersey!
