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….
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 had wonderful holidays. This is just a short post today to tell you that I’m guest-posting over at We All Sewtoday 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!
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!
