Indigo Quilt

This is the first quilt we have created using denim! Most of
us wear denim every day in the form of jeans and shirts and
there probably aren't any of us who haven't embroidered on a
denim shirt. Denim as a fabric is very easy to embroider on and
doesn't pucker. So if a versatile fabric like denim looks good
on clothing it should look even better on a quilt, and it does!
We will discuss how we chose our fabric later in this tutorial so
lets move on to how we created the designs. We chose three
sizes for the blocks in this project. A square along with a small
and large rectangle, the 3 shapes all either use a plain or
folded fabric background. The di­erent backgrounds even by
themselves without any stitching create a beautiful patchwork
style quilt. I wanted to design a stitch e­ect that would fully use
your machines capabilities. Instead of a single pass stitch or a
triple pass stitch these stitches actually stitch up to 15 layers of
thread! You will think that the designs are created using yarn
instead of embroidery thread. The designs were all drawn
specifically for this purpose and then hand digitized. The stitch
length used in the designs range from a 5mm to a 12mm stitch,
when you combine the long stitch length with the amount of
passes you wind up with a stitch like nothing you have ever
embroidered. We used indigo denim as our fabric but these
designs will look spectacular with any fabric. These designs
were all created to be used with any of our other Mix and Match
collections. These rectangles and squares can be combined
with our Quilting Essentials and Beautiful Blocks and Borders
collections for truly spectacular results. Each of the designs
in this collection come in 4 di­erent sizes. I hope you enjoy
working with the Indigo Quilt collection as much as we did.
