Add detail to your quilt project with machine embroidery

I have a wonderful niece named Ally, who has just spent the last 12 months being a Nanny in the United States.  She came back last month, just after her 20th birthday.

I wanted to give her a lap rug for her 20th, and I wanted it to be personal.  Ally has a great love of the actress Audrey Hepburn, and I was lucky enough to find a great panel of panel printed with images of Audrey.

I found a fabric that worked well with the panel, in “Tiffany” Blue/Green.

I then searched for my most favourite Audrey Hepburn quotes.  My personal favourite were the quotes that embodied being a woman of substance.

You do need to be careful when you are using quotations from people.  I would not sell these designs, as they are the property of person (in this case Audrey Hepburn’s family).  The copyright rule is that these quotations can only be used for personal use (in this case for me to use as a personal gift).

Work with the lettering on either your embroidery machine, or on your software package, and begin loading in your designs.

I have stitched these out in pink (which is Ally’s favourite colour), and Tiffany blue/green.

I hope you enjoy these designs as much as I do, and consider using embroidery to enhance your next project.
