You’re here because you have a passion for creating beautiful things and drool over machine embroidered appliqué.

I’m here because I have a passion for teaching you to create beautiful things and also drool over machine embroidered appliqué!

Meaning of Life Designs was founded with the idea that creating beautiful things brings joy, nourishment, and healing to the soul. I believe anyone can learn to do this and do it well, so my designs are appropriate for beginners as well as more advanced creators.

Machine embroidered appliqué should be easy and fun. It should lead to finished projects that you adore and can use in your everyday life – not just stiff show pieces.

The designs you find here are beautifully digitized, come with detailed instructions (sometimes additional video lessons), and are meant to be enjoyed throughout the process.

I combine an eye for design, attention to every little detail, and innovative methods so the patterns are easy to follow, and the ends results are useful. You’ll end up with a cuddly quilt, a beautiful decoration, or a lovely gift for someone special.

Please Look Around

Your next project is waiting for you!

"I’m relieved to know I’m not the only one who is addicted to and owns all of Sarah Vedeler’s designs! My grown children raid my house when they visit to take home treasures that I’ve made...it’s so hard to part with them, but I also love their reactions to the beautiful designs created by Sarah. A million thanks for such stunning designs!"
