I had a rather industrious weekend playing with my new Bernina Q20 & in fact finished a custom Kitty Cat Quilt. It turned out just purrfect LOL. My client wanted atmosphere lines in the background (wavy lines) & minimal quilting elsewhere because she was concerned about quilting over the 3-D ears. I think she will be happy with the tail (spiral) character quilting I did along with the collars on each kitty. Check it out below.:
I'm loving my new Bernina Q20 long arm, the stitch quality & speed is awesome. I love the feature also that shows me when my bobbin is running low. The bobbin sensor came in handy for the green background area of the Kitty Cat Quilt where I used up so much thread!
Stay tuned for more Q20 love, Forgive me, I'm obsessed. 😍
Happy Thursday! It's been a eventful week for me with a Trunk Show on Monday for Halton Hills Quilter's Guild & the arrival of my new Bernina Q20 Long Arm Machine on Tuesday. I have been giving myself a crash course on learning it this week & loving every minute of it.
Why I decided to buy a new long arm you ask?
I know there are many other reasons that this machine will be an amazing asset to my long arm business & I will share more features in the near future on this blog & on YouTube. If you are considering bring a quilt to me, I want to reassure you that my very modest prices are not increasing as this was a personal decision to make my quilting so much easier for me. Have a look at my Studio Tour below and check out my new Bernina Q20 (my new baby), she's beautiful and I need to name her, suggestions are welcome lol. Have a great day!
Happy Spring 😀 For most of us spring is a great time of the year to clean, refresh & renew. For me I am cleaning out my studio/loft to make room for a new long arm arriving today! I'm so excited to have taken the leap of faith to purchase a new Bernina Q20 Long Arm with a Studio 10' frame from Creekbank Sewing In Mountforest. I purchased it because I am dedicated, devoted & a true believer in the quality & craftsmanship that goes into all that Bernina manufactures. Check out the video below & I'll show off my studio once my long arm is all set up. Have a great day!
Today is all about fun & sewing with your sewing machine & finishing up the Valentines Ear Bud Pouch. The prep work is behind us! I’m using my Bernina 350 sewing machine, the #37- ¼” foot & the #4 zipper foot. Check out yesterday’s post below if you missed the cutting instructions.
Tip: Remove pins, engage needle down function & move the zipper open as you go, this helps to allow for a straight line of sewing.
Your Valentines Ear Bud Pouch project is complete. Think about your fabric stash & what colours you have to make a Valentines gift for someone special.
A ¼” foot, zipper foot & a Bernina sewing machine is all you need to make someone’s day. A little chocolate would'nt hurt either!❤️
Wishing you a Happy Valentines Day, I hope someone is sweet to you!
Do you need a small Valentines Day gift suitable for young & young at heart?
You can create one of these heart shaped mini pouches, they’re fast, easy & so useful. These pouches are fantastic for the storage of ear buds (earplugs), jewellery, lip balm, coins &/or pop some chocolates in it for treats on the go. I used my Bernina 350 sewing machine & found myself addicted to making these!
Note: This is part 1 of a 2 part series of blog posts. Make sure you visit again tomorrow for part 2.
For today’s post we will be making the dark green one as shown.
What Will Be Needed
My cutting is complete! I’m ready & excited for tomorrows post when we get to the sewing with a #37- ¼” foot, #4 zipper foot & my Bernina 350 sewing machine. Hope you can set aside time to visit tomorrow.❤️
