Quilting with my Embroidery Machine

Saturday morning I attended an intro class for the Block of the Month program.  It was alot of fun.  Of course the quilter in me was screaming, "But that is cheating!!!" LOL  I brought my free program home and played with it.  I decided I wanted to stick to two colors...

I hooped my backing fabric, laid the quilt batting on top and ran the program.  It outlines it all first and then shows you where to place your first color.  The program makes it almost painfully simple!
I made up four of the blocks, put them together the way I wanted, and now have no clue what I am going to do with it! LOL
Any ideas??

Lovely Memories Quilt (Grandma's Quilt) Finished!

Well, Lovely Memories Quilt is finished and in its gift bag ready to head to Michigan!

I can't wait to give it to my Grandma!!  Here are a few close-ups...

I stippled in the blocks around the pictures and did a loopy trail on the sashing.  For the triangles, I just stitched-in-the-ditch and outlined the hearts in the corners.

You totally Rock!

Well, I have been busy sewing.  I have grandma's quilt finished to the binding.  I picked up two colors today and haven't yet looked to see which I liked better for the binding.

I got my pfaff back from the shop and it purrs like a happy little kitten.  Honestly, it hasn't sounded this good since the week after I bought it!  Grome's did a great job, though I did get a phone call when he got it open asking if I had EVER had that thing serviced.  I told him I had, but we have not lived near a place familiar with pfaffs for the past 12 I don't think it ever got the correct work done on it.

Other than that, I worked on some t-shirts for my son, his wife and my grandson.

And made a small wall hanging for their bedroom....
