Katherine sent photos of a last-minute gift-wrapping project – beautiful! She had no wrapping paper, but plenty of fabric, so she made this precious wrap – which ended up being as big a hit as the gift!
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!
The day arrived for the first fitting of the wedding dress. Of course I had to make the test dress pink, since her very first wedding dress was a pink satin that I made when she was five years old. Since Jessica didn’t want embroidery on her wedding dress, I decided to place some on the test dress.
Bonnie Kimbrough sent this photo of her super-cute Easter table topper, made from Amanda Murphy’s free tutorial. Bonnie’s new to free-motion quilting; This is a nice project for practicing free-motion stitching skills, as the stitches don’t need to follow any particular line or design. Great job, Bonnie!
Amy Millsaps, who works at Raintree Quilting in Juneau, Alaska, sent me this picture of the beautiful Paris wallhanging she composed in DesignWorks software. She combined clipart and embroidery files from BERNINA Embroidery Software 6, OESD Flourish Fancy pack #12224, and the Rose Gown Applique and Paintwork design from DesignWorks Sampler 1 for a lovely montage
As Sewing Celebrity Amanda Murphy of Amanda Murphy Designs has been exploring with her BERNINA 780 E, she has created some of the most beautiful projects. Amanda has even put together videos for each project using her Medallion, Harlequin and Fizz patterns. Enjoy!
