Using Machine Embroidery in a Quilted Pillow – Janome Skyline S9

February 13, 2019

I know it’s been a while since I’ve blogged regularly. I have been so busy with my shop, Pink Castle Fabrics. And, I recently purchased another quilting shop in Howell, Michigan called The Stitchery Sewing center. I have to say that it was a longer process than I had anticipated, buying someone else’s existing business. Of course, now I have the challenge of bringing the shop back up to speed and full inventory. And just like any process, there are bumps in the road and unexpected complications. But I’m getting there and I’m hoping that both shops will be running smoothly soon enough.

It’s been ages since I was able to set foot in my sewing room.  I finally got a chance this weekend to clean up a little bit and put together a project. I had this machine embroidery that I made with the Janome Skyline S9 at work and I finally made it into a quilted pillow.

The Janome S9 has some built in exclusive embroidery patterns by Anna Maria Horner (this is my favorite one!). It’s really a great machine and I think the embroidery looks beautiful. This design took about an hour to stitch out and it has something like 13 thread changes. Worth it! And I really like the way it looks stitched up on the Essex linen with sparkles. I’m not sure if you can see that in the photo but the Metallic Essex linens from Robert Kaufman have a slight sparkle to them without being to glittery. They are a linen/cotton blend and not too heavy so they work nicely with quilting weight cottons.

I’ve been thinking a lot about machine embroidery. There are a lot of ladies at my new shop that are really into it and come up with some lovely projects. I’m hoping to start coming up with ways to incorporate the machine embroidery in projects that look more modern. I’ve learned so much about stabilizer and threads for machine embroidery over the last few years but I know there’s a lot more to learn!
