Embroidered Hearts by Donna Morton
12 1/2" Finished

Download "jef" Designs

Download "hus" Designs

The embroidery designs you have downloaded were specially digitized using DigitizerPro by Donna Morton for Snip and Stitch Sewing Centre. I encourage you to use these designs on the blocks you make for the Quiltpink promotion in your area. Check with your local quilt shops to find out the block sizes that your chosen quilt shop will be using. Designs are quick and easy but feel free to personalize as you wish. Embroidery should be predominately pink and white. Splashes of other colours may be used where needed.

You may use these designs for personal use or on items you intend to use for gifts. They are not intended to be used on items for personal gain or profit unless a percentage (at least 15%) of the proceeds are donated for breast cancer research.

These designs must never be added to any collection for sale.

The designs are offered in only hus and sew or jef format as those are the only machines I have access to for test sewing. The same design is in different sizes. Make sure you select designs that will fit in your hoop. Some jef designs are sized only for the MC11000. You may convert to any other format you need but please test stitch first. If you are not satisfied with the stitch out please do not e-mail to complain. I simply do not have the time or knowledge to fine tune the designs for all the various machines that are on the market.
