It's official! I now have the Bernina 430 and it is such a blast to sew on. Just a breeze right from the start! Although Miss Bee is used, she is highly adoptable! I haven't done much yet with the BSR (it's an attachment foot that helps with free motion) I did regular free motion on the table runner below, and it was great.
This was a Lonni Rossi Panel and I cut it apart and sewed back together some of the fabric elements. I used the bold stripe but cut it apart and sewed dupioni silk with it. I made 4 patch blocks and then a narrow piece to add color and balance to the other side. Backed with swirly black batik, and binding of the same.
This bundle is my birthday present to myself. It has 50 fat quarters and I am turning 55 so I guess I get to buy 5 more! It is a beauty called Peace on Earth. I plan to make Anne Sutton's Market Baskets with it. Wish me luck! The cool thing about this fabric is the multiple designs...maps, dots, berries, flowers...it's all there! Fabulous design by Three Sisters for Moda.
