I got to thinking that maybe we can use them also and convert to the format used by our own particular domestic embroidery machine . I tried it and it works. I have stitched one quilting design out to test the stitch quality seeing that they have changed format completely. There are some fabulous quilting designs out there and there are many inexpensive ones as well that would enable you do an allover edge to edge quilting pattern if you put a work into doing the mathematics in determining the size etc. There are some that would fit the large hoop (Brother 360x 360,Husqvarna/Pfaff 350x350 Grand Dream hoops) that may be easy to split for the overlaps.
I have tried resizing and the stitch out below was originally 305mm x 305mm and I reduced it to 228mm x 228mm to fit in my Janome 230 x230 hoop. This is a free download as well from the webpage with the free patterns at the end that I provided a link to earlier.
