I last blogged on Oct 4, 2011, where did the last 3 months go? I purchased the embroidery module for my Bernina 430. Yes! everyone was right, it is ADDICTIVE. I made lots of gifts for Christmas but neglected to take pics. I have several projects to share with my blogging friends. Some embroidery, a finished quilt and some new creative projects. So get a cup of coffee or hot tea and take a few minutes to view.
First the Whirlygig Quilt I started in workshop with Becky Goldsmith in July. I was very scared to quilt it myself on my Bernina frame because the centers and all the borders are hand needleturn applique. Lots of hours of enjoyment as I became more comfortable with the applique. With many new projects to start (this is a quilt show year for my Guild) I needed to get over my fear and get this project finished. I worked for 4 days quilting and decided to do a pieced colorful border accent. I am so happy with it and have named it "Bee Happy". It will someday grace the wall of a nursery for a grandchild when KK and Kraig start a family. Until then I will keep it for the Quilt Show on Sept 14 and 15.
