Finished -and Some more Machine Embroidery

In case you missed the earlier Saturday post it is here.  There are a couple of close up shots there.

The secret quilt for my brother is finished and will be given to him at his surprise party.
Here it is:


I also played with some machine embroidery.  I got some files from Marjorie at http://shop.b-quilts.com/products.  She also has a blog at http://b-quilts.com/blog/  She does some great work. If you like doing machine embroidery and have an Accuquilt GO! cutter,  You can really find some treasures in her store.   This is a Scalloped Heart from the Scalloped Hearts design set.
I like this so much I took two pictures of the same heart - still in the hoop.


I have some ideas, but for those I will have to use the extra large embroidery hoop.  Stay tuned!
