Are quilt patterns patentable or copyrightable?  What if the basic pattern has been around for years, but in my version, I use specific and one of a kind embroideries on the quilt?

If the embroidery is non-obvious, you can get a patent on it.  However, my guess is that there is very little embroidery that is not already known in one way or another.  But I don't have a lot of specific experience with this particular subject matter (stitching, quilts, textiles).
 
As long as you didn't copy your designs from someone else, they should be copyrightable.  If you haven't already, you should post in the Copyright forum for more guidance on the basics (it's a good idea to search the archives first -- your question may have been answered already).
 
Regards.
