The Bernina 780 – Medallion Pillow

Posted on 57 Comments
I hope everyone had a fabulous holiday and enjoyed the beauty of Christmas!
I’m back with one more project that I did with the Bernina 780.  Yes, in response to an email that was sent to me, I did pretty much just sew for two weeks.  There was no cleaning or cooking.  (What a silly question.)  I had a Bernina 780!!!!
This time I did a little bit more with the embroidery.  The motif is taken from a medallion in my Bella collection for Blend Fabrics and converted using Bernina’s DesignerPlus software.  You can see all the details in my video.

I used the 780‘s fancy stitches to add detail around the edge of the middle panel.  I also used the endless embroidery option for quilting – you can see it a little in the bright pink border.  The endless embroidery option allows you to take ANY of the hundreds of stitches on the 780 and size it up to use for a continuous embroidery design.  It is a great option for creating a unique quillting motif – particularly for borders.

I used the Stitch Regulator to go around the circles in the outer border, accentuating their shapes.

And I used the buttonhole feature – it makes perfect buttonholes every time!

Let’s giveaway three fat quarters of Bella, plus a couple of patterns this time!  To enter tell me what your favoriate holiday cookie is!  One entry per person and the deadline will be this Thursday night (the 27th).

Thanks so much for following along with me and happy sewing!
