I received my complimentary copies of “Through the Needle” over the weekend. Bernina didn’t just send me one or two copies – I received SIX copies (I smell a giveaway once things settle down for me)!!! And kudos to the editorial staff for a job well done. The magazine turned out to be very eye-catching!
I had seen the draft sent to me for final review, but it is NOTHING like seeing the real thing:
Here are more pillow shots:
Back of pillow – the fabric was one of those that I just couldn’t pass up at the quilt shop:

[Through the Needle will feature another article on me sometime next year. Stay tuned! I think it’s going to be really fun working on that project. This project will be done with the help of Rogers Sewing Center. You may contact Rogers Sewing Center for more information. You may also contact me should you be interested in a custom-made pillow like the one shown.]
I received my pillow back from Bernina that is going to appear in their “Through the Needle” issue coming out in November. I was told this issue debuted in the Houston Quilt Market over the weekend. I will post more pictures when I receive my complimentary copies of the magazine:
It is another project with the whole-cloth theme except the main motifs were done by machine embroidery. I had also monogrammed an S for our family last name to give it a more personal and custom look. The background quilting was free-motion quilted with the Bernina Stitch Regulator.
What am I going to do with the pillow? It will be used as a decorative pillow to be looked at admiringly, and occasionally to be handled with clean hands. :) My husband aptly asked me upon completion of the project a while back, “When are you going to make something we can actually use?”. You know what, he had a point…
Thank you for stopping by. I hope you have a lovely Tuesday! As always, I love reading your comments. So, if you are able, do let me know when you’ve been by so that I can visit you back!
Sorry for another partial picture, but I did finish and send off my pillow project by the end of last week. I thought that my “bouncing bananas” (the half-moon thingies) background stitches IMPROVED since I last did them for a quilt:
There is nothing more heartening than improved stitches to a quilter. Improved stitches = more comely work! So, I am quite satisfied with the result!
This week, I am working on a cutwork project using machine embroidery. Never done that in my whole sewing life. We’ll see how it goes, and I will be sure to report back!
Have a great week, y’all!
