Since I'm back from Market and just in time for Blogger's Quilt Festival, I thought I would introduce you to the first of my new patterns in my pattern line, Fizz!

38'' x 48-1/2'' 
Featuring Bella, my latest line for Blend Fabrics 
Best categories: Favorite Applique Quilt, Favorite 2-Color Quilt, Favorite Baby Quilt 
(Since this sample is baby-sized) 
Techniques:  Strip piecing and applique
(You could use trapunto and/or cuddle fabric for the bubbles too for a fun option...)
Fizz is based on just one block, so it can be made in any size!

I love the quilted bubbles that echo the applique!

And this is the pattern, which I should have in hand from my printer next week to ship to shops and distributors. Make sure to visit Blogger's Quilt Festival at Amy's Creative Side to see lots of beautiful quilts!

 Happy sewing!

The new Bernina 7 Series!

Have you seen the new Bernina 7 series machines?

I'm SO excited because I'm going to have the opportunity to try out the features of a Bernina 780 this fall for a couple of weeks as a Bernina Sewing Celebrity!   My mouth is watering as I write this because this machine can paint, and do crystal work and cutwork, in addition to featuring a really long arm and the Bernina Stitch Regulator! You can see a sneak peek of its features here...  And you can make projects truly unique because you can customize all these features using the new DesignWorks software!  See what it can do here...

I'll be blogging about it late December both here and on Bernina's site, We All Sew. Should be really fun!

Hope everyone is having a fantastic weekend with lots of sewing!
