Patchwork Swoon and...


The Swoon block is such a favorite of mine and this large Patchwork Swoon is darling! 

I have to say, I love the back and it shines all on its own. =)

I announced on Instagram last week that I got a new sewing machine. A Bernina 765 SE signed by Tula Pink herself. I chose to quilt the Patchwork Swoon using the walking foot and the #4 stitch, a wavy serpentine stitch. I love how it turned out! Eventually I will practice free motion quilting with the BSR (Bernina stitch regulator). I have to do some practice with it before I quilt a real quilt with it. Soon, I hope! 

Have a very happy Easter!!

  3. great block and envious of your nw machine, have been draming about the 550 model for a while now but just a dream. So need it is a need not just a want a machine with a stitch regulator, bernina seem to be the only ones that have that attachment

    And I'm jealous of your machine;O)

    wow. They are so expensive, like BMWs of machines. Ugh, I am drooling.
    I am very proud of you for procuring such a gem. Well deserved I know.
    Your quilt is so adorable. I want to make one too.
    I love your patched backing. I like to make patched backings too. I love the fabrics. Is that Moda Bella in the blue back ground?
