Were you inspired by Erika’s Sunrise Baby Quilt? Then I think you’ll like this “Straight & Narrow” quilt as well. Kari Carr of New Leaf Stitches provides a free quilt pattern and shows us how to combine stitches on the BERNINA 550 QE and use them for a nifty variation on traditional straight-line quilting.
My name is Melissa Mortenson and I blog at the Polka Dot Chair. I am very excited to be working with Bernina, I love new adventures!

This quilt-as-you-go tote is easy to make, a great stash-buster, and a terrific gift. Jelly roll strips may be used for the stripes; use a variety of prints and colors for a scrappy look.
