|My new baby - a Bernina 580e|
Need I say more? She arrived Monday and I'm still swooning.
I've sewn hundreds of flying geese since then...
|Flying Geese - made from Laurie Wisbrun's Brrrr line|
And tried out some applique and embroidery... The stitch quality on a Bernina 580e is nothing short of AMAZING! I feel like I have only tapped the surface of what this machine can do.
It is worth the mess that is accumulating in the front room as I sew. The kids homeschool and I design and sew all in the same room (usually) and I'm working on a big (secret) project, so things are crazy here right now. But, in case you don't think I'm serious about the mess, here are some peeks:
|Clockwise from top right: more flying geese (from Patrick Lose prints), a wonky star block for the Charlotte Modern Quilt Guild's exchange, about one hundred yards of washed and ironed fabric, and school books galore...|
Lesson: Cropping makes even messy rooms look a lot better.
P.S. I'm taking a little break from introducing Accuquilt tutorials this week to have another Aurifil giveaway - so stay tuned because I'll post rules tomorrow.
