• Inspiration Projects,  Westalee Design Ruler Work

    Plumes With Pizzazz!

    We all know how much Westalee Design rulers & templates can enhance our quilting, but did you know they can take your embroidery project to a whole other level?  Donna McCauley, a Westalee Accredited teacher, shows us how with this gorgeous project she calls “Plumes for Sarah”.

    Before it was quilted, the embroidered panel was quite pretty, as you can see here:

     

    However, by adding some quilting, the panel is transformed! 

    Donna quilted it using only the 6” Spiral template from the Westalee Design Sampler Set, and a medium gold-toned Isacord embroidery thread.   Donna finished her panel by binding it in a beautiful gold fabric.  If you want to try this yourself, Donna said your thread selection is very important.  Have you used your Westalee Design templates and rulers on any embroidered projects?  If so, we’d love to see them!  Send your pictures to info@sewsteady.com.
