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….
Sparkle is starting to ship to stores in March so I thought I’d post the free patterns for this collection. (Click on the captions to have them sent to your email or you can also link to them on the sidebar of my blog or on the downloads page.)
Both of them use the Sparkle panel, but different parts of it so you can make both with one cut, plus yardage. There will even be a couple of blocks left over to make placemats or other small gifts! Oh – here is the Sparkle panel so you can take a peek….
And for those of you who are participating in the APQQuiltAlong – isn’t it fun? I haven’t started quilting but I did manage to get my Easy Addition Sparkle blocks (pattern in the most recent issues of Quilts and More) pieced together. It was super-fast-and-easy – so much so it felt like I must be cheating!
Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend! Happy quilting!
