Craftsy Quilting Sale

Hop on over to BERNINA’s WeAllSew blog for the tutorial for this easy Bunny.

(Have you noticed our new banner?)

The Bunny is perfect for Easter, but it would look fabulous on any spring quilt or a baby quilt.

You can see a video of me stitching the Bunny on BERNINA’s Facebook page HERE–You will need to scroll down to April 7, 2017.

You can find two tutorials  for the Free Motion Quilted Easter Eggs HERE--and HERE–(Throwback Thursday!)

 

If you get to work, quick like a bunny, you could make a small table runner or add the bunny to an apron or tea towel…

Hop to it!

What about YOU?

Are you working on any Spring or Easter projects?

We’d LOVE to hear!

From Sunflowers to Poinsettias

FMQ, Machine Quilting, Lori Kennedy, Christmas

Good Morning, Quilters!

Hope you all had a very happy Thanksgiving!

And I hope the fridge is stocked with leftovers so you don’t have to cook tonight because I have a great project to kick off Christmas!

With just a little razzle dazzle,  The Sunflower Sampler becomes the Poinsettia Sampler!

(For those of you who haven’t been here in awhile, The Sunflower Sampler was our recent quilt-a-long.  You can find all the instructions for The Sunflower Sampler HERE.)

FMQ, Machine Quilting, Lori Kennedy, Christmas

Substitute the Poinsettia FMQ tutorial HERE for the Sunflower center.

Choose alternating curvy and linear motifs around the center to fill the background.  I used Spirals  and The Twist free motion quilting tutorial –and alternated the two motifs in sections around the poinsettia.

By using matching thread, the background recedes and allows the poinsettia to “pop”.

FMQ, Machine Quilting, Lori Kennedy, Christmas

For a simple border, I added wavy lines-one inch apart- and echo stitched each line for more emphasis.

When I finished  the border, I realized this would have been the perfect time to have used a Twin Needle–but we’ll save that lesson for another day–coming soon!
