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….

Quilting BERNINA-Style: Swirl Feathers at We All Sew

Posted on

Hi everyone!
I hope you had wonderful holidays. This is just a short post today to tell you that I’m guest-posting over at We All Sew today on Friday (sorry – change of plans!) with a free step-by-step quilting tutorial there and below. Last month when I visited I could tell from comments there was a lot of interest in learning how to quilt feathers – so today I have an easy and forgiving variation of a feather for you. It is one of my favorites – a swirl feather!

This swirl feather is quilted on a red print for my Sparkle line for Benartex (shipping in March/April) in Aurifil 50 wt. thread on my lovely BERNINA Q24.

You can get step-by-step instructions for quilting a swirl feather by clicking here or on the picture below and you can see more pictures and a few videos by visiting We All Sew on Friday!

Happy quilting!

Free-Motion Quilting Ideas: How to quilt a holly leaf!

Posted on

Hi everyone, I hope you are having a lovely holiday season.  I was playing on Q24 yesterday and stumbled on something really fun I thought I’d share with you.  Quilting free-motion holly leaves!

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…

But 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.)

I hope you all have lovely holidays!
