I have been putting my new Bernina 820 through its paces this week.
I have had houses and gardens “on the brain” lately…
I stitched these doodles on a striped blue and white quilt. Gardens in the blue stripes and houses in the white stripes.
Because I am still getting used to my sewing machine, it took me a bit of “tweaking” to get the tension just right, but once I did I was on a roll…The Bernina 820 has a huge bobbin, so I didn’t need to stop often.
I wonder if the new Berninas have a stitch counter–I need to check the manual–
I would LOVE to know how many stitches are in this quilt…
The Blue stripes began with The Fabulous Flower (see tutorial HERE). Then I did a technique I call “layering in” to add more leaves, spirals, and flowers.
Now that I have this quilt finished, I have no excuse not to clean my house and tend my garden!
