A bit o’ “Behind the Scenes”

After days of playing around, I finally hunkered down and worked on another deadline. This is for a quilted pillow project that will appear in Bernina’s November issue of “Through the Needle” (as always, only a partial shot of the final project before it’s officially published):

You can see that the quilt sandwich is still in the hoop from having the motif machine embroidered. That’s basically how I have gone about making these for the machine embroidery aspect of the projects. Click on the pictures if you are interested to read the posts written about them:

A tip for doing monogram using machine embroidery – always use the same thread for both the top and bobbin threads – the result is flawless that way!

Have a fabulous day, everyone!

  1. My sister got the Bernina Anniversary sewing and embroidery machine for Christmas. It has the BSR and she still isn’t using it! She keeps telling me she doesn’t have the time to learn how to use another machine. (She has a Viking Designer I and Designer II and also an APQS longarm.) It’s driving me crazy ’cause if she doesn’t want to learn how to use it, I sure do! I love what you are doing with your machine!!

  2. Oh, my gosh. Your work is just breath-takingly gorgeous! I adore looking at it although I doubt I’ll ever master machine quilting at anything close to your level!

  3. So beautiful. Will you be able to keep the pillow? Curious to see where it might be displayed when it’s done…
    Love the motif surrounding the S

  4. OMGoodness! What a lovely blog! Your quilts are to die for. Seriously!! And your collection of plates…beyond words. I will be back to take in all it’s lovliness when I have more time to read and not just look at images. I can hardly wait.
    Thank you for stopping by my blog and for leaving such sweet comments.

  5. Your needlework takes my breath away. It is so beautiful and flawless. This would make a fine heirloom to be passed to future generations. What a wonderful talent to have. It must be fun to work with magazines too! Thanks for sharing!
