Jane Crowley’s “Magical Paradox” article in Through the Needle ONLINE Issue #15 was the inspiration for Reikje van Schie’s wonderful embroidered and monogrammed bag.
Congratulations to Shelby on winning not one, but several Logan County and Colorado State Fair ribbons and awards with her first 4-H entry!
Hexagons are “in” now, so I designed a block in the CutWork software that makes a small grandmother’s flower garden flower in just two pieces. When it is embroidered you can’t tell it’s not made from individual hexagons like a traditional block!
The photo started out as a tiny 3″ x 5″ group shot of my husband’s Dad and his siblings. His Uncle Carroll and Aunt Joyce were newlyweds of two weeks. By scanning the original and using software to enlarge and crop the image of the couple, I was able to get a usable print.
Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms out there! I’m so excited to be guest-blogging for We All Sew today because I have something I can’t wait to share. My first embroidery collection, Modern Blossoms, is coming out in just a couple of weeks at Quilt Market! You know that I’m a huge fan of the B 580 and all things BERNINA so naturally I’m very excited.
Doesn’t this look like a fun class? It’s a hands-on event they held at The Sewing Room in Tucson, AZ, for their new B 750 sewing machine owners. They had lots of fun sewing Erika’s Geometric Quilt Block Pillow. Thanks, Mary, for sharing this photo!
