    1. This year I tried a “10 minute quilt block”. Our Guild VP taught a Zoom class on the block. I made a twin sized quilt in no time at all! Was able to play with bright pinks and coordinating colors. Can’t wait to quilt it!

    2. I really like the table runner. I’ve not worked on any projects this year due to personal reasons, but I’m getting inspired by looking at your St. Patrick’s Day projects. Also, we moved, and I’ve got to find my accessories to my machines.

    3. So far, I am learning more about sewing and quilting by trying to do small projects like potholders, a sewing machine mat, sewing machine cover and an ironing board cady. They all involved quilting.

  1. Thank you for these awesome St. Paddy’s Day project ideas! I especially like the Charmed Table Topper.
    So far this year, I’ve worked on making French seams which I added to the inside of a tote bag. I also learned how to make Japanese style hand bag straps…both techniques turned out really well!

  2. I’m focusing on learning ruler work and have purchase several of Amanda Murphy rulers, which I absolutely love. Just finished quilting absolutely perfect stars which really pop on my quilt, makes me look like a pro quilter (which I’m definitely not).

  3. Love all the St Patrick projects.
    I’ve been trying to make a decent tassel that doesn’t fall apart to add to Easter “buskets”
    Kimberbell project.

  4. What new sewing technique have I been working on so far this year? I’ve been working on half square triangles that are really small. So, I have been working on perfecting the finished blocks with small hst without distorting them. I’m getting there.

  5. This year I’ve been working on free motion quilting and have started working on my machine embroidering skills including quilting in the hoop.

  6. Hello…
    “What new sewing technique have you been working on so far this year?”
    I recently purchased several of Amanda Murphy’s rulers. I am practicing on sample quilt blocks how to use the rulers; I love the lollipops! Sew much fun!
    Also, I just purchased a Q16; need some guidance on how to use this beauty, tho’

  7. Thank you for the fun Shamrock table topper. I’ve been sewing Barbie and Ken clothes, and quilts for the Barbie doll house. It’s taking me back to when I was a child and we made our own Barbie clothes. My granddaughter loves everything we make. Her grandpa has made the furniture so this is a family project. I’m also perfecting the cover stitch on my Serger.

  8. I am working on getting accurate and consistent quarter inch seams as well as ‘in-the-hoop’ bags. Thanks for all the wonderful projects!

  9. I’ve been trying out foundation paper piecing and I am loving the accurate points. I also want to try out quilt as you go. Thanks for the “Lucky” free motion quilting idea. My dog’s name is Lucky so I must try it!

  10. I’m over the moon about these ☘️ projects!
    This year I’ve enjoyed working on and learning how to free motion quilt on my domestic machine. It’s been fun and I’m getting better at it every time.

    1. My free motion quilting needs some work so while 8 try and try again I am also working on red work so I can get some of my smaller projects quilted!

  11. I’ve been working on in the hoop projects & learning quick methods to make the embroidery go along fast without issues. Love how quickly you can make the embroidery go along when you take time to “prep” the work & fabric prior to sitting down for the machine embroidery. Hope to be lucky & win – it would be a great birthday present!

  12. I have been working on dresses for my granddaughter and learning new (to me) heirloom sewing techniques. I am trying smocking. I am also learning how to sew layers and layers of tulle and make fancy princess dresses.

  13. I recently purchased the walking foot for my Bernina and I have one of three throw quilts quilted! I am learning different quilting patterns on each. I am really enjoying finishing quilts myself!

  14. I am in the process of completing a dress to wear to my daughter’s wedding that has been postponed 3 times now. I am also creating a sheer embroidered poncho to go over my friend’s dress for the same wedding. She found this beautiful fabric and it is similar to a very soft tulle that has been embroidered with metallic thread. I love the tutorials that are provided on “We All Sew.” Thank you for taking the time to create them.

  15. I purchased a new Bernina 770QE in November 2020. I’ve been challenging myself to learn something new on the machine each week. I’ve quilted a baby blanket and embroidered the baby’s name on it, and last week made the Charmed Table Topper. That was a lot of fun and it is now sporting my Irish tea pot on it! Wish we could post pictures to share with the community. Today I’m cutting out a yard work apron since Spring is quickly approaching and I need to plant flowers. I want to be “clean” during a dirty project. Enjoy sewing and spring! Don’t forget to take time to smell the flowers.

  16. This year I am learning to free motion quilt with my Bernina 770. So far I have been practicing on small quilt sandwiches with my walking foot and BSR. I am hoping to feel confidant enough to work on an actual quilt soon!

  17. I’m new to quilting. I’ve been practicing using various rulers. I’ve been reading a lot of instructions for many patterns. I believe in “measure twice, cut once”. I love your store, the newsletter, and this blog. I especially love what you do for your community.

  18. I have been learning how to sew and embroider on my first Bernina :). One of my main focuses is free-motion quilting and using the Bernina Stitch Regulator.

  19. I’ve been learning machine embroidery and practicing free motion quilting. Once I’m able to get a larger hoop, I’m excited to try edge to edge quilting in the hoop.

  20. I feel like I have been trying so many new sewing techniques (ITH embroidery and quilting, digitizing my own designs, and trying new fabrics) this year, as well as re-visiting some old ones. Learning how to use my 880 Plus has been my main focus in trying all the features it offers. I have been sewing many bags (both ITH and traditional sewing) this past year. I have quilted the fabric, used waxed canvas and even cork. Love Tula Pink’s fabrics and especially this really fun St.Patrick’s Day collection!

  21. I am working on my free motion quilting this year and am watching the Amanda Murphy videos. I love the cute little shamrocks and will try these next!

  22. Love the Shamrock Table Runner !! The new technique I’ve been working on is “confetti” applique. It’s using scraps and bits of fabric, ribbon, cording, lace, sequins, etc. scattered under a layer of tulle and then appliqued around to hold everything in place. My wall hanging is almost finished and all I have to do is the binding.

  23. I learned to quilt! Complete novice when Covid hit. So far I’ve completed three quilts, including FMQ and ruler work. I also have finished about a billion fat quarter sandwich practice mini quilts.

  24. Very recently I’ve been working on sewing narrow hems on fine, scarf fabric. I successfully used tissue paper under the fabric to secure the first stitching approximately 1/8 -1/4″ from the edge. I then folded edge under and stitched right over 1st stitching (only needed short piece of tissue paper to secure stitching at the start…) And finally turned under narrow hem and secured with 3rd row of stitching. Turned out amazingly great!!

  25. I love my Bernina. I try to use it everyday. Sewing is my passion. I make quilts for habitat or for my.many friends at work. I like trying new ideas.

  26. I have been learning how to do machine embroidery and applique projects. I especially love doing ITH projects. I love making things for my family.

  27. I’m working on free-motion quilting and using rulers/ruler foot. I’m finding that it takes practice and to RELAX. Keeping my quilt supported so the weight doesn’t pull on the needle makes a difference too. Thanks for all the on-line classes!

  28. This winter I have been working on log cabin blocks for our 30th anniversary quilt. Picking out the fabric was an activity that both my husband and I enjoyed. Loved the green patchwork table runner.

  29. What new sewing technique have I been working on? I’ve been trying new baby quilt patterns for friends expecting their first child. I’ve never been a quilter so there’s lots to learn. Thanks for all your helpful tips, projects & tutorials!

  30. I am starting to work on incorporating sashito on some of my projects. I am also working on children’s quilts for the “Sleep in Heavenly Peace” charity which provides beds to kids that don’t have one.

  31. This year I’m working on the technique of “finishing” my quilts. I want to stop making just quilt tops and complete the quilts as I make them so that I enjoy the whole process. There’s nothing like a finished quilt. I love shaking it out and then using or gifting it.

  32. I’m concentrating on rulerwork and finishing up all my quilt tops. I’m really loving the rulerwork so i really need to finish old projects

  33. Hi. I been working on 2 things
    1 machine quilting. I am using rulers, I been using the gripper rings for free motion and BSR . And I purchased a new walking foot for my new 770.
    2 the other skill I am challenging myself is learning to use different feet. Ive used the pleater on towels; the couching foot; and the edge foot. and learning new techniques like fringe, corded piping. Love my bernina.

  34. I’ve been working on improving my stabilizing techniques for machine embroidery on my old but reliable Artista 180. I recently embroidered eight sweatshirts for a friend and was quite worried how they would turn out but having practiced, they were fine.

  35. I am new to quilting. Over the past year, I’ve been working on free motion quilting. Following Silvain Bergeron’s tutorial, I was able to make a label for my granddaughter’s quilt. And I made napkin/place names holders out of cork on the embroidery attachment (another of Silvain’s classes).

  36. Thanks for all the “weallsew” ideas , instructions, patterns. Have been making cute patchwork bags using up scrap fabric. This is our “Sassy Stitchers “ community service project currently to give to battered women’s shelter, homeless and the needy to be filled with sundries needed by all.

  37. I have been working on quilting using embroidery designs. I also finished the Busy Book which had numerous techniques. A fun project that encouraged trying new things.

  38. Edge to edge Quilting on my embroidery machine. It’s a little tricky but I’m getting the hang of it. It’s all in the hooping. I’m doing a Queen size quilt and Taking my time with it.

  39. I have been learning how to use border stencils. Bought these stencils from Cindy Needham and they are just fab ulous. Anyone interested can go to Cindyneedham.com to get a set.

  40. Love the St. Patrick’s Day embroidery tips and projects! Can’t wait to try some of them. Over the last year, I have been making and giving free of charge masks to my church (to be distributed to whoever needs them),family, neighbors, and friends. Wanted to do what I could for as many people as I could.

  41. I’ve been working on learning rulerwork for quilting. My FMQ skills are almost nonexistent, so I love using the rulers. They make even my inexperienced quilting look pretty good.

  42. New to me – using a walking foot to completely quilt an item. I have been quilting curves and shapes not just grid or straight line quilting.

  43. I’ve been working on an EPP quilt, and have been enjoying felt projects, in particular making birds with embroidery accents.
    Thanks for the opportunity to win!

  44. I am a newbie at machine ruler quilting, but loving it! I created a table runner using scraps so that I could practice my technique—it’s a steep learning curve, but I’m going to persevere!

  45. I’ve been working on free motion quilting, with and without the BSR foot. I have completed two queen sized quilts. The pandemic has been good for productivity if nothing else.

  46. I have been working on teaching my granddaughter to sew and we made a lined coat for her with a variety of different things for her to learn (buttonholes, detachable zippers, etc).

  47. I’ve been exploring the world of liturgical sewing. My son is a choir director and sub deacon in his church and a has tasked me with projects out of my comfort zone!! My Bernina and all it’s awesome feet haven’t let me down yet!!

  48. I have been devoting a stretch of time every day to practicing free-motion quilting so that I can begin to use the technique on my art quilt projects.

  49. I’ve been working on a Block of the Month (BOM) project w/ fabric that has been cut w/ an accu cutter! It’s like putting a puzzle piece together, then sewing it together (following the directions from the shop!

  50. I just did my first free motion feathers on the Diamond quilt from Amanda Murphy. She gave excellent instructions and I’m very pleased with the result.

  51. I have been working on learning how to use the tapering stitches the last little while and I made some potholders with using the tapering stitches.

  52. So many wonderful new techniques to try and expand my repertoire.
    I have been working my way through experimenting with the use of special stitches, combinations and configurations to add depth to my creations and gifts. I have added quilting and reverse appliqué to some of my more recent embroidery projects. Holidays, birthdays, special occasions are great times to make unique and special gifts.

  53. This year I am trying my hand at applique and ruler work quilting. Lots of fun, but I can see it will be awhile before I get the hang of it! Thank you for your lovely projects! I get lots of ideas from them!

  54. The new technique I’m working on is abstract composition with orange, navy and yellow. I am joining the raw edges by overlapping quilted zig zag lines so navy shows up in orange and orange shows up in navy and a third color fuschia goes in the same zig zag, blurring the junction of the fabrics.

    I recently lost my best friend whose birthday was on St. Patrick’s Day so want yo make the shamrock table topper as a memory for me and for her husband of many years.

  55. I have been working on better precision when piecing, esp. fabric cut on bias. Been experimenting with different thread, feet and tension combinations to get the right mix.

    Also, have been working to improve my machine embroidery techniques.

    Deeply appreciate all the free mini lessons and ideas that Bernina provides to help us make the most of our machines.

  56. I have been sewing a lot this year. The new sewing techniques I have been learning are how to cover stitch on my new L890. I have also been learning how to do french seams.

  57. I have been interested in sewing and quilting all my life. I am a happy bernina owner for many years. I teach my neighbors and friends at church. This gives meaning to my life

  58. Happy St. Patrick’s Day! I’ve been working on new pillow techniques (piecing, quilting, applique) to give as gifts & for holiday decor.

  59. I have been trying to practice free motion quilting on my sewing machine. At times I improve on a consistent stitch width. I need to do it more often.

  60. I’m working on learning to quilt my own quilts on my Bernina B590E machine. So far, I’ve done some free motion quilting, some with my walking foot and even some edge to edge designs using the embroidery unit. I need improvement on all of those techniques, so I’m going to keep working!

  61. I’m new to quilting and I’m participating in the Riley Blake Quilt Challenge, so I’m learning new blocks and techniques. It includes a Facebook group and everyone on there is so helpful.

  62. I’ve been learning to ruler quilt and to perfect machine binding with the 71 foot. I’ve also learn hand appliqué and am working on a wool appliqué project. I’ve learned to pace my sewing techniques and try not to rush but relax whether I’m machine or had sewing.
    Happy quilting!

  63. I Love everything Irish. I am trying to become a better quilter, learning edge-to-edge quilting, and learning about machine embroidery. I love my Berninas.

  64. I embroidered kitchen towels as Christmas gifts for our neighbors and I keep thinking of more friends and family who would like one. I am also trying out using sheer nylon tricot to finish the V-neckline on a lightweight knit top to stabilize and reduce bulk.

  65. Hi, I’ve been practicing sewing a wavy line of stitching over a cord, then moving over to the right or left a little and following the wave with a decorative stitch from on my machine, then move to the other side of the wave and stich the same decorative stitch or a different one along that side. I start over with another wavy line of stitching somewhere else and repeat until I have the fabric covered to my liking. I’ve been thinking of so many ways to use this created fabric and it only cost me some thread and cord to make something so beautiful and interesting!!

  66. I have to practice machine quilting now that I have a new sewing table that accommodates the weight of a larger quilt. I have roughly 20 charity quilts ready to be quilted so I can be creative.

  67. I have been working on ITH projects mostly. Trying to make them without puckers. I LOVE my Bernina and
    I love, love the embroidery module.

  68. I love to sew and do so anywhere from 6-18 hours per day, except on Sundays. Sundays being the sabbath day is my day to rest from my work and passion-Sewing! Most of my sewing hours is in Bridal alterations for brides of all shapes and sizes. My recent desire is learning to free motion quilting! I love learning new skills. I just purchased a longarm machine and table top quilting set up and can’t wait to get started.

  69. I have been working on learning to use my Bernina quilting rulers. I am getting better at it! I also took a class on making blue jeans and made my first custom pair. What a dream to have jeans that fit. I even embroidered on the back pocket.

  70. This year I am learning how to use the machine embroidery part of my 590. The more I practice
    making a small project the more comfortable I get. Soon I am going to tackle a larger piece of
    embroidery!

  71. My new technique I’m working on this year is ruler work. I’ve tried a few times in the past but just enough to see how to do it. This year, I’m getting serious & actually practicing it enough to complete projects. I started small with a baby quilt & I’m getting better & better as I go along!

  72. I’ve been working on sewing with more precision. I’m stitching 2-1/2″ blocks to make 4×4 blocks and have found that it’s not as easy as I thought. With practice I am getting better!

  73. I’ve been learning to use my 770QE that I purchased just before the Covid-19 pandemic, and therefore was unable to get the lessons that I was supposed to get with purchase. So far, I have learned to use the walking foot and have practiced machine quilting. I have learned to use steam a seam fusible web and have practiced blanket stitching around all of the figures.

  74. My focus is in improving free motion results with the BSR, like writing names. It is a work in progress yet a productive mental and crafting adventure during Covid lock downs.

  75. Oh, some of these quilting motifs look especially fun! I’ve been working on my piecing skills (triangles and hexagons, and bias edges, oh my!) and practicing my ruler and free-motion quilting.

  76. Luv the March ideas and patterns. I have been practicing quilting my projects with my Amanda Murphy rulers and finally think I’m getting it. 😎

  77. A friend recommended glue basting with washable school glue and a hot iron. So far I have tested glue basting when I did the binding on a small table runner last week. I can see using it to match stripes in seams.

  78. I’m practicing “Thread Art”. Embellishing small Art Quilts, w/different weight threads, yarns, silk ribbon, netting from Avocado Bags, etc. Also working on having more patience w/myself😉.

  79. My sewing goals this year are to remember and learn more about garment sewing, years ago I did all my children’s clothes and now I have a grandchild and want to sew comfy cute clothing for him. I have been quilting since that garment sewing and would also love to learn to EPP. PLUS the 17th is my birthday!!! Thank you!

  80. I started Lori Kennedy’s Freemotion class.25 Weeks to Freemotion Quilting. Appliquick applique on a sampler quilt, I just finished a Quiltworx”s Paper Pieced Quilt and a clothing project, a blouse for myself.

  81. In 2021 I learned all the many stitches and methods my new L890 can do. Feeling very blessed to have that beautiful machine. I spent most of my time mastering the quarter inch to perfection on my Tula 770 with the 97D foot, however. Loving the We All Sew newsletters too by the way! It’s all a win win! Feeling very lucky! Thanks Bernina!!!

  82. I have been doing a lot of embroidery. Lately, I used a battenburg lace design of a heart from Embroidery Library for Valentines Day. The design used Madeira Cotona and was beautiful. I gave each grand-daughter one in their Valentine card.

  83. I’m busy learning new things my Bernina can do!
    I’ve really been focused on the actual quilting process as I have accumulated a number of quilt top that need finishing and I was just to timid to tackle.
    I love We All Sew ideas and teachings! Thank You!

  84. I have been working on Paper Piecing (FPP) with the Tattoo Quilt, using Tula Pink fabrics from my stash! Well, except for the yardage I bought for the background & backing!

  85. I have been working on a challenge for my quilt guild. It was a color design challenge, but I made it even more difficult by choosing a pattern with two different types of curved shapes in each block. The top is done and sandwiched. Now on to the quilting.

  86. I’m working on machine applique techniques. I see so many cute projects using applique and would like to be able to work on them with confidence.

  87. Projects for me lately are strip lap quilts for charity trying to make a dent in the bags of leftover fabric pieces taking up too much space in my closet.

  88. The new sewing technique that I have been working on learning this year is ruler work quilting. I have been practicing with the We all Sew Ruler Work for Beginners sew a long. I just bought my last ruler to complete the last block and then put the quilt together. I always enjoy learning new sewing techniques and am grateful to have access to the We all Sew instructional newsletter, thank you Bernina.

  89. This year I’m working on converting domestic Bernina fmq skills to fmq on a long arm. Also learning how to make all kinds of bags. Fun year of learning all kinds of new sewing techniques!

  90. I have actually been focusing on two things this year, perfecting my bindings and rulerwork with some free motion quilting thrown iin the mix..

  91. I have been sewing many garments and have been practicing sewing buttons on by machine. I still turn my head away to guard my eyes in fear that the needle will break but that only happened once. Sometimes the button slips a bit even when the needle and holes have been carefully aligned with the first stitches. Since then I have been using a smear of washable glue to set the button before aligning and sewing. It works so great I find myself avoiding shank buttons because I really want to do everything by machine!

  92. I’ve been working on cute little wall hangings for myself (usually everything I do gets given away) and practicing some free motion quilting. Thanks for the chance to win 🙂

  93. I love the Shamrock table runner. Lately I am learning ruler work on my Bernina 790 plus but would love to try some of the free motion techniques shown in your post. Thank you!

  94. I took a class via Zoom to make my first landscape wall hanging. Finished up with free motion quilting for detailing. The rolling hills remind me of our trip to Ireland many years ago.

  95. I am making an Easter table runner and hope to finish it today. Then I plan on go back to figuring out how to do ruler quilting on the machine. I hope I don’t become an addict to it.

  96. The new technique/product I have been using is In-R-Foam for use in a bag I am making. I like it much better than other types of interfacing I have used.

  97. Thank you for all your tips. I have been trying to learn to free motion quilt this year. I bought the Amanda Murphy Diamonds Quilt fabric and have been quilting along with her instructions. the piecing was great, as I have been a seamstress for a very long time. But the quilting is going very slow as it is quite different than what I’m used too. And that’s okay. I’m here to learn. So thank you again!

  98. I am busy embroidering and quilting. I am experimenting on making unique quilt labels for my handmade quilts. I enjoy all the inspiration you share

  99. Just finished two little in the hoop zippered coin purses and now working on embroidered felt bookmarks sewn onto paper! Also customizing Easter bunnies for our grandgirlies. Having lots of fun with my new 770 Bernina. It’s the first Bernina I’ve owned!

  100. I dont think of it as a technique, but I have been working on bag construction. Some are very complicated-but they are the ones with lots of pockets and zippers and engineering in them. I have made clothing but some purses are more difficult, not to discount how much the designers test patterns. Hats off to designers and their testers. We should all try bags, but start easy and work your way up…the deep end can be frustrating. My Aurora 450 has been a champ during this process
    Thx

  101. St. Patrick’s day was my fathers birthday. He died when I was twelve, but it’s still my favorite holiday. I always drink a green beer in remembrance of my father.

  102. Thread painting and panels. I never thought I would be interested in panels but adding thread painting to them gives them a whole new look. I’m also working on my machine embroidery and learning the best ways to incorporate those blocks into quilts!

  103. I learning how to use my rulers, what a great Christmas present they were! The Bernina Ruler Work lessons are so great, nice and measured to build confidence. This gives me confidence too as I continue to work on free motion! I think one technique helps me with the other. I’m a novice quilter, and I’m loving it. The sky’s the limit 🙂

  104. I am working on making a quilted jacket and learning to use bias tape to bind my seams so that they will be nice and clean without having the added bulk of French seams! Loving all these green colors for spring!

  105. This year I’ve been learning and practicing to quilt with the long arm. I love it so much. Looking forward to that big Bernina purchase some time soon! Retirement cannot come fast enough!

  106. I used a stencil of a sunflower to quilt the log cabin squares on a table runner. I was surprised at how good it turned out … as long as you don’t look too closely! Finally found several tools to allow me to trace the stencil onto light and dark fabric. I was excited about that.

  107. I’ve been working on Ruler work quilting with my new Q16. Also catching Amanda Murphy’s videos and Facebook lessons, as I work on her Diamonds quilt.
    So much fun!!

  108. I am enjoying my After School kids Sewing Classes that I teach. Sharing the skills I have learned from my Bernina classes and paying forward is so rewarding. Lately I have been focusing on my ruler work skills.

  109. This year I’ve been learning and practicing the “Butterfly Seam”, taught in a Parallel Universe Mystery Quilt Class by the GEL Designers group. Has helped eradicate my avoidance of Y Seams. Yay, here comes a tumbler quilt…

  110. I’ve been reacquainting myself with garment sewing, started with a few tees and now making a knit wrap dress. Very fun – and a little stressful 🙂

  111. This year on my new Q20 I’m finishing quilt tops from over the years & implementing ruler work with Amanda Murphy’s & Bernina’s ruler varieties to make they really exciting! Love making all the possible designs!

  112. I really appreciate We All Sew! I did not start sewing until grandbabies starting arriving, and the first three were girls and I just loved sewing outfits for them. I am still learning so much, thanks to We All Sew! I am learning new tricks and techniques and am very grateful to you all!

  113. I have been working through the lessons in the Bernina Stitching Cosmos class, which has taught me so much about my B 790 Plus. It was from this site’s different references/links that I eventually discovered this fabulous learning resource. The class provides instruction for using 18 feet and more than 20 techniques, so I am using feet that I did not know existed, i.e., Circle Sewing Attachment #83, Spanish Hemstitching Foot #47, Bernina Stitch Regulator (BSR) #42 and many others. I am really enjoying learning how to use my Bernina machine and the gorgeous project(s).

  114. I have been learning to sew with knits this year. I have always avoided them because the seams seem to pucker but I’m getting better keeping them flat.

  115. I used presser foot #71 to sew a hem on things like a tablecloth.
    I also used foot #55 to sew very close on a zipper–closer than a zipper foot!

  116. I love WE ALL SEW. Great information. I have been trying to learn to quilt with rulers on my domestic Bernina. I am making slow progress. Practice makes perfect.

  117. I’m Irish & learning the new Bernina feet on my new 570 QE Tula Pink. I’ve never used a machine like this before. So much to learn even after 60 years of sewing experience.

  118. I tried my hand at making a binding for a small project. I created a whimsical Tea Cozy that has vintage kitchen appliances and tools on it in pretty pastel colors and made a binding to go around it. It turned out quite well for a first attempt and I just love it over my teapot!

  119. I’m learning to quilt with rulers on my domestic machine. It takes a lot of practice. I have been enjoying thankful Thursday with Amanda Murphy.

  120. I have been working on using the cover stitch on the L890. I have also been working on reverse appliqué. There are so many techniques to choose from!

  121. Besides perfecting sewn face masks, I have been working on turning my PUL scraps into padded bags for storing bathroom items. I’m using a pattern which calls for bonding fleece to cotton, & since I do not want to iron the PUL fabric, I have been gluing with patience, & it has turned out quite well!

  122. I recently ran across Peg Spradlin’s Fold ‘n’ Sew idea and I’ve been having a ball putting this technique into some fun quilts on my 750 QE for my six newly adopted Grands.

  123. I am working on a quilt that uses freezer paper piecing technique. This is new to me and I’m finding that I am doing better with it than regular paper piecing! I just finished a top using the apple core template, this was also a first. Just trying “new” things.

  124. I’m becoming acquainted to my new to me 440QE by participating in a Jen Kingwell Boho Heart Quilt-a-Long. I’m really impressed with the quality of Bernina!

  125. My #72 foot and the Amanda Murphy rulers are on my table to inspire me to take a few minutes to practice my ruler work quilting every time I sew. Amanda’s videos have been particularly helpful.
