Quilting BERNINA-Style: Free-Motion Panel

Some of you might have caught a glimpse of this on my BERNINA Q 24 Frame just days before BU.

Well, I was sworn to secrecy at the time but now I can tell you!  This is the new Quilting BERNINA-Style Free-Motion Panel that I designed to help people become comfortable with free-motion quilting and it will be arriving exclusively at U.S. BERNINA dealers in October!  (I’m not sure about availability for international customers at the time I’m writing this, but I’ll let you guys know if I hear anything, ok?)  Whether you quilt on a long arm or domestic, I hope you really enjoy it.






I this many of my favorite allover quilting patterns – some of which can be found in my Free-Motion Quilting Idea Book.  The coordinating app that is coming soon shows many of these patterns being quilted on a BERNINA.

After you get practice with many of the designs in the outer blocks, you can work on combining them in the central panels.







The panel measures 36” x 54”, so is easy to maneuver both on a long arm and a domestic.  There is a smaller panel that will follow, perfect for making bags, pillows, and placemats.  I can’t wait to see what you all make with these!

Also, for those of you who have written me, sign versions of The Free-Motion Quilting Idea Book are now available in my shop.  Directions for the coordinating sampler will be available as a download from C&T soon, and the app version with video of a lot of these designs being quilted on a BERNINA Q 24 will follow.

Hope you are having a great summer and happy quilting!
