Have you looked in your user's manual for your machine(s). In my manual for the Ruby they show you how to put 2 designs together, so you could sew the 'wedges' together without bother.

You can also print out the design and use that as a template. Use at least two templates (or more) and arrange those on your fabric making sure they connect correctly. Mark the axis-lines and the centre for each one - https://www.emblibrary.com/EL/ELP... might be helpful. Mark two, then rearrange the first one to get #3 marked, and so on.

No sewing together afterwards, just careful marking and hooping.

Hi Carolyn,
I know what you mean. In order to do that you must use a design that has been digitized with a border suitable for doilies, then you have to use your embroidery software (like Embird). In your software, open the design, duplicate it (6 or 8 times or more) in a circle. If the complete doily fits into your hoop, fine, otherwise reduce or add more times until it fits your hoop and you can stitch it out in one hooping. Years ago, when we all had small hoops, the digitizers used to offer designs of wedges of doilies that you could stitch out one piece at a time and then you could use the zig-zag of your machine to stitch all the vedges together and get a larger doily. You can still buy them if you want. Refer to the photo below. Hugs, Lidia

Most of the ones I've seen photos of either stitch them together with their sewing machine using a narrow zigzag or use a satin stitch.

Carolyn, I don't exactly know what you mean. Are you thinking of one piece of fabric and embroidering a design several times without outlines being out of alignment? Your machine manual should have some info about placement marks and how to use them. Can you show what you want to do or what the problem is?
