Finally, Nordic Holiday fabric and patterns are now shipping to shops!If you don’t have a local shop, you can find the patterns here.
I hope you have a lovely weekend – happy quilting!
Well the word is that Feathers & Flourishes is starting to ship to shops – YAY! So excited to see what you make with this line!
The free patterns that go with this collection are now available for download. The first is called Cinema and is a 2-1/2”-strip-friendly bargello quilt reminiscent of 1920s design.
I have to brag for a minute – my daughter quilted most of this one using rulers on the BERNINA Q24! Proud mom!
The second pattern is called Evolutions and is a re-release of a pattern formerly in my line that was just perfect for this collection. (The blue version is in a box on its way to BERNINA University and I forgot to snap a picture of it so I’ll have to show you that one later. Special thanks to Jo Anne and Traci for helping with these!)
You can get the other patterns that go with this collection in my shop or, better yet, please consider asking your local quilt shop to order them. The local shops are the lifeblood of this industry and we want them to do well!
If you make something and have an instagram account please post to Instagram with the #amandamurphydesign and @amandamurphydesign labels – my user name is AMANDAMURPHYDESIGN.
Easter is just around the corner and I just got out one of my all time favorite projects – my Easter Egg Table Topper. This was originally designed for BERNINA to showcase all the features of their wonderful machines and I now have it available for download free to you guys!
I love it because it is charm pack friendly and all the eggs are appliquéd down with specialty stitches, so there is a lot of detail. Sometimes we forget all the stitches we have on these fabulous machines!
I embroidered little bunnies on the petals using my BERNINA 780 – they are optional but so fun! I used Aurifil thread and quilted this on the BERNINA 780 as well….
