I purchased a babylock Elegeo Plus about 10 months ago and LOVE it. I am finding I am getting limited by the size of the hoop. Is anyone else experiencing this issue.

Ruth, I love the quilt you made using Jenny Haskins' designs.  I attended a seminar last yr by a woman who is a certified teacher of her designs.  The quilts were just breathtaking.  They are not for the faint of heart - that is for sure!

I don't know where my comment went but here goes again.  I love how the embroidery adds dimension to the quilts.  Has anyone seen the publication put out for Machine Embroidered Quilts?  I haven't seen it for a while.  I am breaking down to purchase the 5d Embroidery for my Designer 1.  I haven't been able to embroider for sometime because my computer doesn"t accept my old software.  Got to keep up with the technology.  I did make a quilt sometime ago that was all embroidered without a disk!  It really came out nice and was accepted in Paducah about 10 years ago.  I was really very proud of it.  Check it out on My Place.

Marian, the thread I used is a dark teal by Hemmingworth.  If you have never used that brand of thread I would highly recommend it.  It only took me about 2 months to make that quilt & it is also hand quilted.  Unfortunately that doesn't show up very well in the picture.  This was an entry in a contest sponsored by Hatched in Africa & you had to use "x" number of the designs.  I liked them all so decided to just use every one one them.  I belong to their Yahoo group.  Several times a yr they have a challenge of some sort.  Everyone who enters automatically gets a $15 credit toward the purchase of a design of their choice, plus they give out add'l prizes to winners of the challenge.  I doubt I will ever win any of the challenges because there is some pretty stiff competition, but it is worth it to enter just for the $15 credit.

Janet, if you look at my profile I do have some of my embroidery pictures there, I have more to post but I am awaiting my big computer to come home from the repair shop so I can load more pictures. 

Your quilt looks very delicate from what I can tell, I find your colors interesting in that they go with my bedroom theme of colours.  How long did it take you to make the quilt?  It reminds me a little bit of the quilt that I have out at the quilters at the moment.


Shirley, that is totally amazing that you did all the embroidery on the 350e, you ROCK girl, keep up the good work.  I am looking forward to seeing more of your work.

I would love to see pics of some of the quilts you are all making using your emb machine.  Here is a pic of a quilt I made using the Delicate Elegance design set from Hatched in Africa.  This quilt traveled with them on a tour last yr after I showed it to them at a seminar in Springfield MO.  I was so honored when they asked me if they could do that!  The pic is not the best, but some day I hope to get a better digital camera.

Well Ladies, I have finished the black Geometric quilt is off the the quilters now.  This quilt will be going into the Moose Jaw Quilt Show in April.  I will post picture once the quilt has the binding on it.  I am really excited about the quilt and how it came out. 

I have also completed the blocks for the earth tone quilt using the same blocks and it is gorgeous also.  Customers who have been coming is love both the quilts.

I've made a few quilts using embroidered blocks but haven't yet used it to machine quilt...need to try that soon.  I have a husqvarna viking D1 embroidery machine and I love it!

I hear you Janet I would love to have a Jewel or other equal great machine however space in a condo is limited, now the shop is a different story......oh right the cost is the big thing, I will have to save up my loonies and toonies.....
Comment by Janet Espeleta on March 9, 2011 at 10:24am
Marian, I also have the gigahoop for my Janome, which is basically the same as having 2 "b" hoops next to each other.   The Babylock machine I would really like to have right now is the Jewel, but I don't have the funds to buy it nor the place to put it.

Janet,  The Sophia 2 comes with an optional 6-7/10 x 4" multi positional hoop.  One of the gals who purchased her Sophia also purchased the extra hoop, she has not been in to take her owner classes yet.  I am looking forward to see what the larger hoop will do.
