Embrilliance Essentials is the perfect tool for customizing designs. For the Fuzzy Wuzzy Ducky Quilt appliqué blocks, the duck is appliquéd to the precut quilt block and then before unhooping, the batting and backing are attached to the bottom of the hoop and the echo quilting is added.
Looking for an adorable, easy, and quick project for a special baby gift? This quilt is just the ticket! You can finish this quilt in just two good days and it will work well for both boys and girls.
Winter storms are still blanketing the midwest in snow and ice and Easter is just weeks away. These quick and easy table napkins can bring lightness and brightness to any meal from a holiday brunch to an everyday lunch! Using designs from Fantasy Birds and purchased napkins, you can embroider this no-sew project in an afternoon or an evening.

The 2012 Heirloom Angel is here and she's a stunner! My favorite is the one with the red silk skirt.
I've stitched her in different colors but you could easily stitch her in just one. Silks, satins, and Twinkle organza add elegant holiday touches when used for the skirt panels.

These two darling baby bonnets are quick and easy to construct. You can easily whip one out in less than an hour (minus embellishing time) and more than likely with supplies you already have in your stash!
What could be sweeter than this? Just in time for Valentine's Day, you let your embroidery machine whip up some lace that can be transformed into a small ring or trinket box, a sachet, or an ornament?
