Now that I have Art and Stitch, I really wanted to give machine embroidery another try. This time I decided to go simpler. I purchased a used Brother PE 500 machine (which only does embroidery). I watched a number of You Tube videos on the machine. I also spent some time at a retreat last weekend, talking to a machine embroidery expert in the group (who was working on embroidery designs on her machine).
I was ready to try again. I thought I would start with recreating a small quilt block using embroidery. I am a big Dear Jane fan and thought that one of the Jane Stickle blocks would be a good start.
I selected the first block to get started.
