I changed out the quilts hanging in the studio. Something lighter and more spring-like.
Luckily, I label my quilts. Made this in 2001. For a Bernina publication. Was it A Touch of Artistry? How can I not be sure? Woe be me.
I embroidered the flowers on stabilizer only and then used a heat tool to melt the stabilizer away from the embroidered piece so that all the embroidery were separate pieces. I could layer and add at will.
I used free motion stitching, straight line stitching, stitch in the ditch quilting. One of my favorite things is how the piping peaks out of the binding.
I also couched some threads down around the center. I'm all about texture!!
Those decorative stitches on your machine are just dying to be used.. Let them out, they can create some fun pieces of art!
Update: I found the publication in which this quilt was featured.
