Preparing Blocks for Embroidery:

  1. Layer fabrics together to prepare for embroidery work and quilting. Embroidery stabilizer will not be used since the multiple layers of the quilt will support the embroidery design. Layers should be as follows: Quilt Backing (right side facing down), quilt batting, quilt top (right side facing up). Layers can be pinned together (avoid pinning in blank blocks) or temporarily adhere using a quilt basting spray.

  2. On blank blocks, find center of block and mark with a fabric marking pencil or pen. Center marked spot in the middle of hoop, using plastic template to find center location. Once placement has been found, secure fabric in hoop using magnetic clips as shown. Remove plastic template before transferring to the machine.

Snowflake Embroidery Design:

  1. Power off the sewing machine. Attach embroidery unit onto the back of the Quilt Maker Memory Craft 15000. Change presser foot to P Embroidery Foot. Replace bobbin case with the yellow dot bobbin case and bobbin wth a Janome prewound bobbin for embroidery. Open Embroidery Unit and then power on machine. When prompted, choose OK to switch to embroidery mode. Thread the machine with embroidery thread.

  2. Select the Built-in design key, then the Design Category key. From the Design Category choose Redwork Designs by Y.GANAHA. Select the 4th option of the larger snowflake.

  3. To customize hoop option to fit the ASQ22 hoop, choose the home option, then the Editing Mode Key to open up editing options.

  4. Next, choose the Hoop selection key, scroll to page 2 and select the ASQ22. Select OK at the bottom of the screen to move back into stitch mode. Screen should now reflect hoop as the ASQ22. Attach hoop into embroidery unit, select the green Start/Stop button to begin stitching. Once done, remove hoop, re-hoop into another blank cream block and stitch again until all blocks are completed.

Finishing the Quilt:

  1. To finish the quilt after all embroidery is complete, switch machine back to sewing mode. Select the “home” at the bottom of the screen, then touch the “t-shirt” to enter into techniques. At the bottom of the techniques screen choose the “Quilting, RW, VZZ” option, then Ruler Work, Free Motion, or Straight stitch depending on desired method for finishing. Finished photos of quilt reflect a combination of Free Motion and Ruler Work to Complete.
