Finished Fishies and a Side Project


Good Morning, Quilters!

I was able to remove a UFO from my list–The Fishy Quilt is complete–binding and all.  I bet you can guess the inspiration for this quilt! 

It was quick and easy to appliqué (My preferred method is needle turn, hand appliqué) –then I splashed on a few fun threads.

I stitched Pearls in the sashing

Then I added Scallops,

And when I was finished, I didn’t want to stop…do you ever feel that way?  You just get on a roll….

So I picked up an old tutorial (The Tomato Pin Cushion)  and started filling in a few details…

More to fill in…. but a certain teenager home from football wanted dinner…

BERNINA asked me to add a short video to The Jack-o-Lantern tutorial on their blog, We All Sew.…so I propped up my cell phone and stitched Jack again–

The video is on  BERNINA We All Sew Facebook Page HERE–and is doing extremely well…

It’s kind of mesmerizing.

I think Jack O. has a spell on me…

He wants me to stitch a girl friend for him…

Not sure it’s wise?
