The first project made on my new Bernina 765B is done:
Stella's Splendid Doll Quilt, 22" x 29". Top made yesterday, finished today, machine quilting done on the Bernina Q20 sit-down longarm, and binding made and attached by machine on the 765B.
Stella recently got a doll bed and my first thought was "that doll bed needs a quilt" so I used fabrics from Stella's Splendid Sampler and here it is. Stella's big girl bed quilt won't be done for at least six months but when it is, she'll have a quilt for her bed that matches her doll bed quilt.
There is always a learning curve when using a new machine, even though I've driven a Bernina since 1987. I think I've got my beloved 1/4" seam allowance figured out. The machine binding was a breeze, even without the walking foot which isn't in yet. This machine has dual feed capabilities so I used that. All I have to do is hand stitch the four corners, and stitch the sleeve down on the back.
That wraps up all my Christmas projects/shopping so now I can start wrapping gifts. We are so excited to have our kids coming for Christmas.
By the way, there was a good response to the small group who want to work on the Halo Medallion Block of the Month. We have room for about 5 more and I expect we'll get those as word gets around and life settles down for most after the holidays.
I wish you all a wonderful holiday, however you spend it. Be safe and happy!
