Quilting fabric in the Embroidery Machine

The idea for this new embroidery file I got from one of my longtime testers, Cornelia of Zwergenwelt.

Cornelia desired a quilted fabric, to be more clear, an embroidery file to create own fabric with different patterns in different sizes. It sounded an interesting idea and today I am sharing with you the result of my work.

The embroidery machine is doing the quilting work: With the file „Quilted Fabrics“ you can quilt squares, rectangles, circles, ovals and hexagons in perfect patterns.

Go and clamp your batting and create your own quilt fabric.

And to make it not easy for you you can chose from 4 different sizes.

The quilted fabrics you create can be used for a lot of things.

I did 2 cosmetic bags from it.

When you like them, here is the instruction:


First the half-round bag:

First embroider the file with the circle. I used soft stabilizer. This stays with the fabric.

Atop the stabilizer I put a 5mm batting and on top of this comes the rose fabric. Alltogether is clamped to the hoop and the embroidery machine does it’s work.

After embroidering the circle is cut out with 5mm seam allowance.


Take the divisible zipper and divide it. It has to be 12cm longer then the circle circumfence.

Put it to the edge, teeth down to the inside. Quilt it with the zipper foot.IMG_2544Looks like this:

Cut a circle from lining in the same size as your quilted circle.IMG_2547

Place the lining right to right on the circle with the zipper, to loose ends of the zipper to the inside.

Fixate it with pins or wonderclips.IMG_2548

Sew from the backside (the quilted one) directly onto the previousely sewed seam.

Leave a 6cm turn opening.IMG_2549

Turn your project and get the zipper ends. Close the opening.

Now the challenge is to join the zipper.IMG_2550This is how it looks now.

The zipper is now looking to the lining side.IMG_2551

To bind the loose zipper end cut out a 3x8cm piece of fabric and iron the edges.


Fold the fabric right to right and sew the open left and right sides. Turn, iron and move it to the zipper end.

Secure all with a seam.IMG_2553Does you project look like the pic below?IMG_2554

Now put over the bag (the zipper moves inside), and you are done.IMG_2556

Do a little embellishment on the zipper.

The other bag I did from 2 quilted rectangles. I used the 20x30cm file, but the 13x18cm file and the other sizes will work as well.


First do the rectangles. With the rectangle as template cut 2 pieces lining.

The zipper has to be 10cm longer then the longer side of the rectangle.IMG_2558

Divide the zipper, put it with teeth down onto the quilted fabric.

On top comes now the lining.IMG_2559

Sew all 3 pieces together, try to be as close as possible at the teeth.

Open, and iron

Place the zipper…

Now again open your pieces and put it together, that the quilted fabrics and the linings are one above the other.

Fixate all.IMG_2565

Do one seam around, leave an 8cm opening.IMG_2566

Pull the bag, do not yet turn.

All 4 corners will be quilted. Do a line in 2cm from the corner and quilt the corner.IMG_2567

Cut the remainder.

Do this with the upper fabric and the lining corners.IMG_2568

Now it is time for turning.

Close the turning, do some embellishment work.

And here we have 2 perfectly quilted bags. Great!Stickbaer-Quilted-Fabric-Tati-12
