Say What??!!! Sew it - show it challengeBlog hop

 Today is my day to share on the Say What???!!!! Blog hop hosted by Joan @ Moosestashquilting.com

I wasn't sure what to share, but as I started looking through some photos I remembered some things that I had done.

  Some are with an embroidery machine that I used when I was working at a local quilt shop selling machines and I had to learn to use the different machines, so I could demonstrate them to customers.   That was the funnest part of the job.    I loved seeing what these machines could do. 

This quilt was done for a co workers little boy.   It was a baby gift and I had fun doing this.   This was fun to do and I did the applique by machine. 

This one I did while doing the quilting on my domestic machine. When I first started learning free motion quilting, I was told to try things like loops, name writing, basically things that were already muscle memory.    I tried that and it came fairly easy to me. 

 I also have done this on longarms, when I was selling those at the quilt shop.   I would show customers how they could do that.   As they tried, they were amazed that they really could do it.   This is shown in the 2nd picture. 

Have you tried quilting your name when you are free motion quilting? Or have you appliqued a name on a quilt?    Leave a comment and let me know?   

Be sure to follow the other bloggers this week.  They all have something fun.
