Looking for a fun project for the cold winter months. Here is an idea for a Blue Heron wall quilt. I was inspired by a Baby Lock article on the wall quilt they made using an embroidery and sewing machine. I also found a free Singer Blue Heron embroidery that can be used in “other brand machines”. I even found clip art you can use to auto digitize you own embroidery. I posted the project page on my web site and here is the link to all 3 projects. If you need to convert and save a design here is a link to the free Compucon EOS viewer format conversion tool. Interested in Compucom embroidery software? Here is a link to read about Compucon products and watch video.

SINGER Stock design CD Wall Quilt
Our SINGER Stock design CD embroidery quilt can be done on any embroidery machine that uses a 5” x 7” hoop. The format is DST, which most embroidery software will recognize. The printable templates and layouts make the transition from design to sew out easy. Just remember to center your hoop over the cross hairs.
You will need:
–Singer Stock design CD of 3900 designs or some floral and border embroidery designs that are similar.
-At least 3 1/2 yards of top background fabric for a 6 block wall quilt- each block is 20” finished. Each border is cut 6” across the 45”width of the fabric. For a 6” block wall quilt, cut 9 strips for border.
I am looking forward to a New Year and my hope is it will give us all a new beginning. The Serenity Prayer keeps coming to mind so I thought it might be time to share the words with you!
I was playing around in the Singer Futura software and came up with some brand new Christmas designs for you. They are free! Here is a link! Make sure you sew them out before you place the designs on a project. The Auto punch software is responsible for both designs. I have done both designs in the FHE Futura format. If you have another machine and you want a conversion using the form below and tell me the design you wish and what format you need. Continue reading
There are several new sewing projects posted on Sew4Fun.com. I really liked the neck pillow and the Christmas in July star ornament. I have posted links to them on my project page. Look toward the bottom of the list for the neck pillow link. I am definitely making these as Christmas gifts. First I am making one for me.
I recently posted pictures from past Summer and family vacations at my Gallery page. The good, bad and the ugly is all there. See pictures of me at the beach as a little girl with my brother and mom. Look, I was topless. I think my dad was taking the picture. Those were the days. Everyone who grew up on Delmarva enjoyed fun in the sun. Now we have so many tourist I wait till the Fall or Spring to dip my toes. Hope you are having a great Summer.
