Embroidery Machine Cover..........

Finally I have finished putting the hexagons together and now I have a beautiful cover for my Embroidery Machine.  I had no pattern it was just pin .  put on machine and cut till I got the shape that I liked.  I put a frill around the bottom  and an In the Hoop Rose from Bobbins for Applique, just to pretty it up.  I made the leaves freehand on my sewing machine. I had one small piece left so I decided to put it on the back, and it is just big enough to hold the cord.  I had to use every single bit of the hexagons after spending so much time putting them together.

After spending months making hexagons I have finally put then together.  I was going to make two large cushions for my swing chair on the veranda, but after seeing how quickly the other cushions faded I decided that after all that work I would make something that would last  a bit longer.
I decided to make a cover for my Embroidery Machine.


This is the all over stippling design I got from Susa Glenn Designs. I also bought myself  a Monster Hoop which has made the hooping a lot easier. I am in the process of putting the Machine Cover together.  I love the idea of In the Hoop quilting, all the stitches are so even, I could never do this freehand.
