Pro tip: Always remember to download these designs in the format compatible with your machine, like .jef for Janome or .pes for most Brother machines. And, if a design resonates with you, don’t forget to support the digitizer!

1. Stippling Embroidery Designs

Stippling stitches are a quilter’s best friend for small projects. They’re super useful for completing quilts, especially when you want a connected design for continuous quilting. For the tech-savvy folks, I craft my designs using Hatch software, but for those on a budget, SewWhat-Pro is a fantastic choice.

  • GG Designs Embroidery offers free stippling stitches that come in various sizes and spacings, providing you flexibility in your projects.
  • Kreative Kiwi has another set of stippling designs in various machine formats and sizes for your choosing.

2. Quilting-in-the-Hoop Designs

If you’re in the mood for something a tad different, here are sites providing alternative quilting block designs:

  • Kreative Kiwi brings you a cross-hatch quilting design, perfect for crafting quilted fabric for items like potholders.
  • Five Star Fonts Embroidery has a diamond quilted applique frame in several sizes.
  • EmbroideryDesigns.com boasts two delightful cross-stitch patterns resembling quilt blocks. If they pique your interest, they have more designs available for purchase.

3. Continuous Quilting Designs

For those who love designs that offer a seamless look, continuous quilting designs are the way to go! Here are some free options:

  • Designs by Juju has a unique end-to-end quilting design. Their website also features a range of similar designs at affordable rates.
  • Amelie Scott provides free patriotic edge-to-edge designs, along with many other continuous designs up for grabs.

4. Comprehensive Quilt Designs and Instructions

If you’re looking for a complete guide, Hatch by Wilcom offers tutorials on designing various types of quilting blocks. Plus, they come with free design downloads!

5. Best Places to Buy Embroidery Quilting Designs

Looking to invest? Here are my top picks for sites offering exquisite quilting designs:

  • Etsy: My personal favorite for edge-to-edge designs is JLdizains.
