I saw my first "geese in a circle" block the other day on Kerri's blog, Lovely Little Handmades, the other day....and needless to say, I was in awe!! I immediately followed her link to the tutorial by the Sometimes Crafter, and made one of my own. Once made, I had to find a purpose for it...with some quick sewing and about and hour of time, my Bernina had a new cover!!
I was able to make the whole cover using scraps left over from my last quilt, including those wonderful Alexander Henry dots that I am obsessed with.
Now Nina doesn't have to worry about dust anymore!!
As for the rest of my time, I have started a new quilt. That is, I have spent quite a bit of time sewing up some HST squares.
I am waiting on the post man to bring me the last 2 fabrics I ordered for this baby....it will be my first time quilting with HST squares, so I am pretty excited.
On another random note: I have a new obsession....Sulky 100% egyptian cotton blendables thread.
Before getting my Bernina, I always quilted in white....mainly to hide the fact that my old machine never stitched constantly. Now, my stitches are all even, and showing them off has become fun. These Blendables are nice, subtle, and add such a wonderful touch to my quilts. Like all things I become obsessed with, I need them all!!!
