Susan Stewart is known for her masterful use of digitized embroidery designs. Part of what sets Susan apart is that along with her embroidery and beautiful machine quilting she also incorporates heirloom machine sewing techniques in her work.
In our newest issue, November/December 2017, Susan takes us along on her journey of creating Moonlight Sonata.
She begins with her procedure for creating a test stitch-out of some of the motifs on the fabric she’s chosen. It’s no surprise that her method involves plenty of planning and precision.
She also shares her assembly methods, including using lace she’s created by machine, and details her batting and backing choices and how they impact her design. I love the beautiful photographs that show the quilting while it’s in progress.
The end result is stunning.
