BERNINA 125th Anniversary Quilt-Along: Preview

Welcome! I’m BERNINA Expert, Amanda Murphy, and I would like to invite you to join the BERNINA 125th Anniversary Quilt-Along!

BERNINA Jubilee Quilt by Amanda Murphy

The BERNINA 125th Anniversary Quilt. Kits for this quilt are available from your local BERNINA store and are being bundled with 125th Anniversary Edition Machines.

We’ll be piecing and quilting together over the next six months, incorporating a wide variety of techniques along the way. The directions will be available for free here on WeAllSew. Whether you choose to sew the quilt in the original fabrics or opt to select your own, we hope you will participate in the fun!

The quilt also features embroidered motifs, but we’ll give you other design options as well if you choose to forego the embroidery. We have some great prizes in store for you as well like this fabulous BERNINA Anniversary Edition machine:

BERNINA 7 Series Anniversary Edition

There are infinite variations possible and we can’t wait to see what you create!

So join us this Monday, September 10th, on WeAllSew!

HAPPY ANNIVERSARY, BERNINA!

Amanda Murphy

        1. In general, instruct you to press seams to one side when I know they will lock with other seams. And when I want seams to “disappear”, like in the border, I press them open. That being said, these are only suggestions and you should feel free to press as you prefer.

      If the link above doesn’t work you can get to it by going to the product page of the Anniversary Edition sewing machines (880 Plus or 790 Plus), go down the list of what comes with the machine, and click on the 125th Anniversary Quilt Kit and it will take you to the pdf that has the supply list as well on instructions of putting this together.

        1. Hi, I recently treated myself with the 790 Plus AE. I plan to do the quilt along. Has the download been fixed yet? I consider myself a beginner so I don’t want to do the wrong thing.
          thanks

  1. Do we need the special software to do the embroidery on the 125th Anniversary Quilt? Just yesterday I obtained my machine and I am currently taking my beginner classes for the 790 Anniversary edition. Thank you.

  2. I love this! Will the pattern be available on this site? How much will it cost? When can I get started? Many thanks Amanda Murphy for a beautiful project!! I too am looking forward to everyone’s quilts.

        1. Yes. They won’t be loaded on that machine, but they are available separately as part of the BERNINA 125th Anniversary Embroidery Collection. Or you can substitute other embroideries or do applique or eliminate the embroideries all together.

  3. I have a Bernina 440QE, will these Embroidery patterns work on my machine? The store where I purchased my machine went out of business. Can these kits be purchased online?

    1. I’m sure that if you call some BERNINA dealers, they would be happy to do mail orders. Many stores have the kits. If you have the embroidery module for this machine and an oval hoop, you’ll be able to stitch out the designs, although you’ll have to multi hoop the designs for the corners. There is also a Jubilee embroidery panel available for those who would prefer to applique the motifs. Hope this helps!

  4. Can I please purchase the designs via download
    I am in Australia
    I am so impressed with this lovely quilt.
    I also would like to purchase the fabric kit for this quilt
    Can anyone advise where I might be able to purchase the fabric please.
    Cheers

  5. For those of us outside of the USA who don’t own an embroidery machine or have access to the alter appliqué blocks will there be suggestions on what we can use instead or close up posted of said blocks so we can find something close to the designs to use in their place?

  6. Ordered an Anniversary Edition 790 last month and am anxiously awaiting delivery. Hope it arrives soon so I might be able to catch up with the sew along as I become familiar with my new machine.

  7. Hello Amanda,
    I have remade block E three times and still it won’t come to measure a 6.5 inch block. I don’t have a lot of extra fabric to keep playing with, but even decreasing the seam allowance and making the initial pieces longer, it will not work. HELP!

    Thank you.

  8. Since Block E is made form a Template I’m wondering if there is a chance you didn’t print it out at 100% and instead selected something like “Fit to Page” in the printer dialogue box. (It might not be phrased exactly that way because each printer is different.) If it is printed at 100% the template should measure 3-1/2” high.

    1. Oh, I think you’re on to something. I went back and reprinted the template at 100% (I didn’t realize it printed at 93%) and it looks like it will work. Thank you so much. Wish I had thought of that. I am hoping to make it correctly today.
