Seas the Day Table Setting

Exclusive designs to the Husqvarna Viking Designer Ruby 90

The Husqvarna Viking Ruby 90 has an incredible selection of built in Signature Designs.  These include forestry, florals, toadstools, seashells & combi vans.  When I first saw these designs, I knew I wanted to create a project.  With the days warming, now is the perfect time to create a table setting for the outdoors.

These designs are exclusive to Husqvarna Viking Ruby 90 owners.  They are not currently available for purchase and cannot be shared. 

One of my passions is to take a set of designs into the mySewnet software and arrange them in many ways.  However, with the Ruby 90 the designers have done the hard work for us.  I especially enjoy the larger Majestic Hoop (360x350) designs that have been included.

I purchased pre-made placemats and a table runner previously and knew the ocean-themed designs would work a treat.

First thing was to use the endless sea life design on one end of the placemats.  This was a no brainer.  Because the placemats are really large, I am able to see the design even with plates in place.

To stitch out the designs, use two layers of Inspira Dissolve Away Plus in the hoop.  Lay the placemat over the hoop in the desired position and Baste in place.  Basting is a fabulous built-in feature of the Ruby 90.

To create the table runner took a little more thought.  First I stitched out the centre design.  This was done on the Designer Majestic Hoop.  A massive 360 x 350mm of embroidery space! 

It is easier to stitch out the majestic-sized Sea Wreath design first and then change to a smaller hoop and stitch out the wording separately.  I did this because the lettering has long satin stitches and it would not stitch successfully.  You would see the line and spoil the end product.

The ends were the most fun.  I had to use the Combi designs somewhere in the project.  So, I had a play with the software and arranged the designs as you can see.  Now I may have done a little modification here and there to make a few things fit.  But if you have a table runner a little bigger than mine, you won’t need to do that.

I encourage you to use the built-in designs on the machine.  There are still more that I am yet to play with.  Seas the day sewers!
