Welcome to day 2 of our 12 Days of Christmas Giveaways. Each day QuiltShopGal will showcase a different sponsor and unwrap (reveal) their gift to one lucky winner. To enter to win, you need to claim at least one option in the Rafflecopter form, but for those that like to increase their odds, there are a variety of options and you can claim as many as you wish.
Today, I’m delighted to have Marjorie Busby of Blue Feather Studios as our sponsor today. Marjorie is a talented quilter, long-arm quilter, as well as machine embroidery digitizer. For those that enjoy machine embroidery, as well as interested in learning machine embroidery I hope you’ll enjoy this post. I’ll be showcasing many of Marjorie’s beautiful machine embroidery designs, as well as heightening awareness of her freebies, and hosting a generous giveaway sponsored by Marjorie, for one lucky machine embroiderer.
And, the special gift from Marjorie, which will be shipped to one lucky winner, by QuiltShopGal, is open to WW followers. Time now, for me to share insights about Marjorie and her beautiful machine embroider designs.
MACHINE EMBROIDERY DESIGN COLLECTIONS are available on Marjorie’s Blue Feather Quilting Studio online store that can be downloaded. She also has many available from AccuQuilt, where some are downloadable and some are available via CD, as well as from the Craftsy store.
QuiltShopGal has stitched out many of her designs and they always stitch out perfectly, with amazing detail. Her designs stand out with great detail, super crisp lines and angles, minimal or no jump stitches, and the obvious – super cute designs that are very versatile for what you can create with them. Here are a few examples:
INSPIRATIONAL PROJECT IDEAS
As I’ve mentioned, Marjorie shares tips, tutorials and inspirational projects on her blog, as well as her guest blog posts on the Craftsy blog and the AccuQuilt blog. While the possibilities of what you can create with Marjorie’s machine embroidery designs are endless, here are a few project by Marjorie that caught my attention:
I’m actually working on fun and fast projects to give as gifts, this holiday season. In the past, I’ve used her designs to create table toppers, wallhangings, baby quilts, mug rugs, as well as fabric books for toddlers. What I’m currently working on is for Christmas gifts, which I want to keep as a surprise, thus I can’t share all of them with you, but I hope you’ll get the idea as I show you a mug rug that I’m auditioning fabric for binding. This was stitched using Marjorie’s GO! Sleigh – Reindeer – Snowflakes collection. Super easy, fun and fast, with amazing detail.
Think about how great mug rugs would look with Marjorie’s snowflakes, reindeers, stars, Christmas trees, or other designs. Of course, they’d also look great on placemats, table runners, wallhangings, Christmas tree skirts, clothing, quilts, etc.. And, they’d certainly make for great decorations for your home, as well as for gifts.
FREE PATTERNS – As mentioned, Marjorie has several free designs that are fun to stitch out and also a great way to see the quality of her machine embroidery designs.
Marjorie is also a co-author with Hope Yoder and Debbie Henry, for an e:book “Stitch for Success“, that you can download for free from the Craftsy website.
DID I MENTION A GIVEAWAY?
One lucky winner will receive a special gift from Marjorie, of 5 machine embroidery CD collections. They can choose to keep this gift just for themselves, or help spread the good cheer of holiday gift giving by giving one, or more, of the embroidery CDs to a friend that enjoys machine embroidery.
To enter, simply claim one or more options using the rafflecopter form below. I’ll randomly select the lucky winner tomorrow. I’ll send them an email to let them know, as well as update this post. QuiltShopGal will be mailing these embroidery designs to the lucky winner and will pick up the shipping cost to a world-wide follower.
