My First Samples
I trimmed these samples down to 4-1/2" because I had intended to do a churn dash with the farm animals. To do a 12" block, I needed the center to be 4-1/2". I'm not sure about my plan, now. I may try to find an attic window pattern that would be better suited for 5" blocks. Or, I may just cipher a 15" block.
When I decided to buy a new embroidery machine, I debated about what kind to buy. I chose a Janome because I didn't like the thread cartridge in the Brother. Believe it or not, I made the right choice. Brother announced they are discontinuing the cards for their machines. And I so love the Janome. It's as easy to use as my regular machine. And now that I know that I can do this applique embroidery, I have all types of projects running through my mind. Toodles!
