I had a blast in Jane Sassaman's Moths and Moons class in Houston. I got to try out the new Bernina 570 QE and fell in love with her. I totally bought one that will come just before Christmas! YAY! It has a ton of built in stitches and a built in walking foot! Sew excited!
Here is my moth before any stitching.
Here is my moth after stitching.
And with the head and antennae.
You can see I had fun using a lot of different stitches.
On this piece I did some orange stitching right at the edge of the big piece and then some purple outlining. I wasn't sure if it would work out spacing wise, but it did.
Here's a closeup. The orange is stitch 427. I love it. It's my new favorite!
I had some trouble with this oval. If you look closely you can see some red triangles going into the circle. Then I added a pink satin stitch all the way around the edge, but I didn't like it, so I added the purple stitching on top. The purple stitching was done with a 28 weight Aurifil thread. I love it and can't wait to use more 28 weight.
The yellow in this is such a fun stitch! I like how fat and random it is.
Here's a completed top wing.
And a closeup of the bottom wing.
This is my first attempt at changing the width of the satin stitch as I sewed. It's a little clumsy, but I'll get better.
This was such a fun class.
I hope you get to quilt today!
