Snowmen-A Free Motion Quilt Tutorial

Snowmen, FMQ, LCKennedyGood Morning, Quilters!

The Winter Wind has arrived and brought the snow…

Time for Snowmen!


I am writing today at the BERNINA blog, We All Sew...You’ll find the step-by-step tutorial for this jaunty little snowman there.


As you know, I am proud to be a BERNINA Ambassador as I have been sewing on BERNINA sewing machines for more than 30 years–(If you must do the math…I started sewing when I was 5.)

I love BERNINAs for their incomparable stitch formation that looks as good on the back as it does on the front!

Currently, I am sewing on the B 770 QEwith adaptive tension–my favorite machine of all time!  I just can’t say enough about how much I love this machine (and all of my 6 BERNINA sewing machines)–they all have their own personalities.

…so if there’s room on your “Good Girl List”—consider a BERNINA sewing machine this Christmas.

While you’re at We All Sew, check out the great tutorials and Giveaways going on at BERNINA’s Countdown to Christmas.

  1. Love the snowman. You make it look so easy. Will this tutorial be included here on your blog or will we need to go to the Bernina blog in the future if we want to try it?

  2. Lori, your work is wonderful. If I thought I could make my FMQ look as good as yours on a Bernina, I’d buy one! I agree they are great machines; sadly, I don’t see one in my future. When I chose my machine (about 10-12 years ago), I debated between the Bernina and the brand I have. I do like my machine, but I still long for the beautiful stitching you get with a Bernina…

  3. Wow, this is amazing quilting. If I could quilt like this I wouldn’t even need to piece the top, just quilt it. I have also been sewing on a Bernina for 40 years but it is the same Bernina…a 1974 830 Record. Thanks for the amazing tutorials, Lori.

  4. I love the vase quilt, esp the snowman. I collect them. I will be making one of these small quilts to add to my collection.

  5. I did buy myself my first Bernina. The 580 is all I could afford. I have had her for about 3 months. I really love this machine. Most of my machines are husqvarna. They are wonderful machines also but the Bernina just looked fun. I still have lots to learn. I am enjoying the process

  6. Oh the inspiration you give me with all your tutorials, but I absolutely adore snowmen so this is the icing on the cake. By the end of next year I hope to have my own small quilt on my wall. Thank you so much. What a way to end the year.

We'd LOVE to hear! Please reply...
