The month of December can sometimes be a bit stressful with so much to do it’s hard to actually enjoy the holidays as much as we should. It’s time to stop stressing about presents, parties, and preparations. Enjoy the holidays by taking time out of your day to sew something cute. Give these Quilty Holiday Ornaments a try, they will for sure get you into the holiday spirit. We made our Quilty Ornaments with Little Town fabrics and smooth denim from the AGF Denim Studio and paired it with lovely decorative stitches and quilting.

We love using Bernina’s decorative stitches in our projects! Use contrasting color threads to make your project pop!
One of our favorite features on our Bernina is the Free Hand System! The Free Hand System is a good way to raise the presser foot temporarily when you want to pivot at the corners make sure to have the needle down position engaged! When you get to the corner to pivot, use your right leg to raise the foot, turn the fabric to the new direction, release your leg to lower the foot and begin sewing again.
To make your strips on your present ornament attach your Blindstitch foot and line your strip up with the metal guide and stitch as close to the sides of the strip as possible. Make sure your needle is all the way to the left.
