Easter Egg Table Topper Complimentary Pattern!

Posted on

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….

Free-Motion Quilting Ideas: How to Quilt Hearts Free Tutorial

Posted on

Hi there everyone.  With Valentine’s Day just around the corner I thought I’d make up another free PDF tutorial and video for you guys.  This one is on how to quilt hearts!  I love quilting hearts because they are very forgiving and have a lot of movement.

Here are some examples of hearts from portions of my Free-Motion Quilting Idea Sampler.  (You can join the Facebook group for the Sampler, Book, and App where we talk quilting here.)

I like to put pebbles in the areas between the hearts to fill in any awkward gaps and add interest.

And here is a video so you can see how I actually quilted these out on the BERNINA Q 24…

Before I had the Q 24 I quilted this on my BERNINA domestic machine all the time so you CAN do this!

If you are like me you like to have a visual reference close by while you are quilting, so I also made you a free handout.  To get the pdf delivered to your inbox click here or on the graphic below. (But don’t worry, if you are already on my list for updates it won’t send you a duplicate emails – it just needs your email to send the pdf.)

I hope you all have lovely holidays!

Oh my gosh… it is so much fun!  And you don’t have to be an expert to do it since leaves are pretty forgiving.  (I used my Sparkle line for Benartex and Aurifil 50 wt. cotton thread.)

I made a video for you guys…
