This was my first project from Hoopsisters. I took it a Nuttall's store here in Salt Lake City. I really enjoyed doing it and learning all the new techniques. I learn quite a lot about my machine also. Thanks for making such fun projects.

My sister saw this in quilt shop and loved it but didn't have the machine to do it, So talked me into it (Thank You Sis) I made it in black white and red. It was nice to see it come together.Looks wonderful in my dining room.
This quilt is everything. It gives the sewer her beautiful embroidery and the quilter her trapunto and texture. I fell in love with this quilt and especially the textured corners. On my quilt I used upholstery white braid with a silver edge to it which complimented the crisscross white and silver fabric I used. The candle wicking stitches were done in deep maroon which brought together the maroon satin fabric I used throughout the quilt. The centre was done in blue sateen with a silver sheen to it. This quilt has pride of place on the top my bed. I look at it daily and see something different every time. Fantastic!
I loved this project. I did it in blacks with white and black zebra for the "zig zag" and purple accent. The back, sashing, and border was purple. I went a little "out of my box" with the colors, but was pleased with the results.
I have sewed on a few Hoopsisters projects and I just love the TNT. There is so much detail in it and it is so Beautiful. Thank you Hoopsisters! Rose :-)
I stitched this lovely design in my first Block of the Month class in 2011. The patterns and beautiful stitching garnered many praises from family and friends. It is an excellent option for gift-giving. You can stitch the entire series or the center blocks alone. If you double the center blocks, you get a beautiful pattern. I've enjoyed learning about stitching in the hoop and about different techniques and embroidery terminology. Thank you!!
This project was my second Hoopsisters quilt, having been first introduced to the Hoopsisters by doing the Bowgello Mystery quilt. Everything went together very well. It's amazing how well the Hoopsisters projects turn out. Thank you, ladies.
Think the design is great- so many different looks with changing the fabric and thread. Look forward to finishing it.
I enjoyed this project very much, it was easy and fun!
I learned all about machine embroidery in 2009 and have been obsessed with it ever since. When my local dealer asked me if I wanted to do TNT, I couldn't wait! The shop was doing it as a block of the month but I got it done about 4 months ahead of schedule! It was so much fun, I didn't want to stop working on it. My favorite part of the entire project was the stippling. The fabric I used looks like soft leather with the stippling. It's gorgeous. Everyone who sees it loves it. Thank you Annie and Linda for your amazing products!
This was a way for me to learn different techniques as well as things about my new machine. The stitches are beautiful and different. I am amazed at how nice they look. It was fun and interesting in the beginning but when I got frustrated with my machine not working correctly I lagged behind with finishing it. It turned out nice but I still have the binding and sashings to finish. I really enjoyed working in the hoop, marvel at how the block is embroidered when done and have moved on to other HoopSisters projects.
