Very beautifull ! What will you do with ?
Hi Claire, these are some of the designs for my Queen size quilt. Have a look at the others on my Projects page. Love Chris
Congratulations on the new Ruby, I also have Ruby deLux,
but this is beautiful designs
Thanks Sigrun. It's a beautiful machine isn't it? Love Chris
Very nice Chris, can't wait to see your completed project!
Thanks Mary, me too! Love Chris
Chris, I have a question. Do you use batting when you embroider these? I tried to look up all your squares and see if you already told us, but your use of tags has varied over the various posts, so I get only this one when I use the tags you added this time.
Sorry Martine, I never can remember what I’ve tagged I should just put quilt squares then I could find them too!!! No, there is no batting, just medium weight stabiliser. When it’s all sewn up I send it to my quilter and I have the batting put in as one piece sandwiches between the top squares and the backing fabric. Then I bind the edges etc. love Chris
WOW!!! That look absolute fantastic and very nice . . and beautiful.
Thanks so much for you wonderful adjectives!!! Love Chris
Wow, looks great, beautiful stitch out, and a lot of fun!, hugs Maria
Thanks Maria, I can't wait now to finish them. Love Chris
Lovely, looking forward to the finished quilt. Love the colour.
Hi Carol, I can't wait now too! Love Chris
Nice work Chris
Thanks Monika, love Chris

Hi Soozie, I've got them lying out on the back room floor and found I only have 6 more white ones to do - yeah!! I think they look classy too! Love Chris
Very Nice!! Sounds like the Ruby Royale is a best friend already.
Thanks Pam, well I hope she is going to be a lifelong friend. love Chris
Thanks so much Miss Lillian, love Chris

Good morning Sandra, thanks so much for commenting. Love Chris
Wow Beautiful!!!Looks Great stitch out!!!
Thanks so much Sonja, still a few to go. Love Chris
Gorgeous, Chris....bet it was fun working on your new machine!
Hi Vicki, thanks and yes, it was fun, challenging too as I have to remember different places where things are, but I'll get there eventually. Love Chris
Your qult blocks are remarkable! I look forward to seeing the finished quilt. I can't qulte tell what type of stabilizer you are using? Is it a thin bat? or maybe a light weight stabilizer?
Hi Penny, it's a medium weight double layered as there are around 50,000 stitches in some of them. It's a tear away style. Love Chris
Thanks for the info! You get a great stitchout with that combination.
These are turning out so beautiful!! Well done to you and your new embroidery machine!!!
Thanks so much Laura, love Chris
Thanks Carolyn, love Chris
As all the others I love these as well. Your quilt will be a beauty!
I am glad your Ruby Royal stitches so well. Mine is not royal at all, just plain Ruby and I have not had a single problem with it since I bought it in Nov 2010.
Wow, Martine, well that's promising. I do hope mine does as well. My old Designer 1 was in the shop every 6 months or so, but as I said previously somewhere it was a real workhorse! Love Chris
Chris this is going to be a great quilt. I am happy that you are so pleased with your new machine. That makes getting things done so much easier.
Hi Angie, yes, it's great to be able to just sew and do other things at the same time without having to constantly be listening out for the machine to play up. Love Chris
I love Kim's question. If we ask the right questions, we learn more about our craft and equipment.
Oh, forgot. More of the same blue loveliness in your squares. It's going to be magnificent.
Thanks Betsey, yes I believe it will look fabulous. Love Chris
Two more beautiful squares! Is there any difference in the stitch quality with your new Ruby versus your others?
Hi Kim, yes I feel there is. The stitches seem much neater and stronger. The old Designer 1 stitches were a looser looking stitch. Thanks for commenting. Love Chris
Thanks, Chris...how do the stitches compare to your Brother machine?
They are the same now! Love Chris
