Hi Cuties, well here are the first two designs I've sewn out on my new Husqvarna Ruby Royale.

It did a fantastic job, no thread breaks, no stoppage and it sews beautifully.
Still got more to go, but hopefully I'll finish all the squares before the end of this year!!!!!!!!!!!!!
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

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

pennyhal2 by pennyhal2 02 Sep 2018

Thanks for the info! You get a great stitchout with that combination.

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

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

Oh, forgot. More of the same blue loveliness in your squares. It's going to be magnificent.

Two more beautiful squares! Is there any difference in the stitch quality with your new Ruby versus your others?

pennifold by pennifold 01 Sep 2018

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

dragonflyer by dragonflyer 01 Sep 2018

Thanks, Chris...how do the stitches compare to your Brother machine?

pennifold by pennifold 01 Sep 2018

They are the same now! Love Chris
