Couching Fibers Along, Part Four
Grüezi mitenand! Hello BERNINA Q . . . Quilters?!
Here is BERNINA Ambassador Carolina Asmussen, from Carolina Asmussen Designs.
Welcome to the Couching Fibers Along – Week 4!
If for some reason you lost the Couching Fibers Along previous information you can check by week here: Week 1, Week 2 and Week3. Last post we started and finished to free-motion couching the coral flower.
This week, we are all about the greens! So, gather your materials and let’s make some noise with our BERNINAs.
Couching Fibers Along – Week 4
For this week, we will free-motion couching fibers the leaves from the template’s design.
Materials for Week 4:
- Quilt sandwich (white cotton fabric with the design template, batting and backing fabric)
- DMC Tapestry Wool color 7364 coordinated with Aurifil 50wt color 5016 (we will call this combination our color 6)
- DMC Tapestry Wool color 7347 coordinated with Aurifil 50wt color 4026 (we will call this combination our color 7)
- BERNINA Adjustable Ruler Foot #72 and couching inserts
Preparing the BERNINA Adjustable Ruler Foot
Because we are doing much more than ruler work this time, we need to attach the couching insert to the bottom of the BERNINA Adjustable Ruler Foot #72.
The couching inserts come in a package with 3 different sizes: 2.2mm, 1.8mm and 1.4mm.
For this entire project, we will use the insert with the larger gap at the center, the 2.2mm.
Now you just need to snap the couching insert to the bottom of the foot and attach to your machine.
