Modern Holiday Blog Tour Day 6 and Quilty!

Hi everyone,
In just a few hours it will be Bernina's day on my Modern Holiday Blog Tour at their We All Sew blog!  It is only fitting since I sewed every single project in the book on a Bernina 580, which I love.  It is such a great machine - does lots of what the bigger machines can for a really reasonable price and it has such a compact design.  Here are some of my favorite feet I used with sewing Modern Holiday.
#57 - 1/4'' foot with blade for REALLY fast piecing

#18 Button sew-on foot (but I used it to attach yo-yos to velcro)

#38 Piping foot for applying trim

#20 Open-toe foot for appliqué

And of course the Bernina Stitch Regulator


Since this is Bernina's day, it is also a perfect time to show you the first project I quilted on the Bernina 780.  This is a quilt called Arbor Walk featuring my Bella line for Blend Fabrics and it is featured in the July/August issue of Quilty!




It is actually a really simple half-square triangle quilt.

I started out at the bottom of the quilt with a swirl motif, and worked my way up adding pebbling.




At the top of the quilt with swirls disappear completely and there is just the pebbling... like bubbles rising up from the ocean.


Thanks for letting me share and don't forget to stop by We All Sew in a couple of hours for another chance to win a copy of Modern Holiday!

Happy sewing!
Amanda

P.S.  Just a reminder... should you win a book on the blog just know it won't be sent out until the end of the tour.  I need to compile a complete list to send off to C&T first.

That quilt is so beautiful . I do not have a Bernina. I have 3 Baby Locks. But I do have a little basic Bernett by Bernina...Its a cute little machine I picked up for 25 dollars at a thrift shop.
