Janome surface design: embroidery + piecing = very neat projects

Here’s a really neat way to combine your love of machine embroidery with your passion for piecing/quilting. Miriam Coffey is one of our Janome America Educators and is a presenter/contributor on Fresh Quilting.  Check out this video in which she explains how to use your embroidery machine to stitch surface design on fabric and then chop it up to piece together for quilting projects.  I think you are going to like this as much as I did. I saw the samples at Sewexpo in Puyallup, WA in March and you will see them on this video as well as learn how you too can accomplish this easily and creatively with your Janome Embroidery machine!

      Hi Mary,

      Some of these are built in designs on our Janome embroidery machines. Some may have been digitized by Miriam and some may be on our AcuDesign app and http://www.janome-embroidery.com. In addition, our AcuSketch app was also used to produce quilting/line designs for embellishing the fabric.
