Note: The winner of the previous post is Heather K. There is another giveaway at the bottom of this post.
Next up in the 780 countdown? A photo album using improvisational piecing, free motion quilting with the aid of Bernina’s Stitch Regulator, couching, and CutWork flower embellishment, this time on a smaller scale. I used motifs from Bernina’s Stitch ‘N Bloom collection for the embroidery. This is a great way to try out new collections! Keep a stack of designs ready and you will be ready for your next improvisational project…
I’m not a great quilter, but I find I do much better on a smaller scale. It is less intimidating for me to experiment in small areas. The Stitch Regulator makes it much easier!
When I was piecing the center I also added some couching using Bernina foot #21 and decorative thread.
These CutWork flowers were so fun to make! It was really easy to draw them out (either by hand or in a graphics application) and convert them to CutWork in DesignWorks.
Quilting – it is fun to divide up areas and do a different pattern in each.
It is easy to see this from the back.
Want to learn more about the process? Watch the video.
I had a few CutWork flowers leftover, so let’s do another giveaway. How might you use CutWork to embellish something you are working on? Please leave a comment. Deadline is this Sunday the 23rd at midnight.
