Embroidery:
Upload the files from the Fabulous Flower Set to the embroidery machine.

Select threads. Mark the position of the embroidery. Working with one design at a time, stabilize the place. Hoop the fabric tightly and embroider the designs one by one.
Quilting and Finishing
Now place the backing on a flat surface (table) face down. Cover with batting. Spread your working piece over it.

Pin all layers together.

We quilted in a free-motion style all over the quilt. Start from the central part and echo-quilt the embroidery first, then quilt all over in patterns you prefer.
