BERNINA Foot of the Month

August BERNINA Accessory Special
25% Off Applique Foot #23*

It’s perfect for mini quilting as well as raised applique.
For more information, go to the BERNINA Website at:

BERNINA USA Website Appliqué foot # 23 Information




The pattern is fascinating to me and, even better: it is not complicated to sew. I chose for the class sample the Ombre fabric Gelato. Colorful florals or batiks would be great as well. (Homework is required)

Animal Collage Quilt

These are wonderful animal collage art quilts created from patterns designed by Laura Heine. Pick your favorite out and it will be made by fussing cutting flowers, leaves, paisleys, butterflies, birds, whatever you want to use. These have been such a success with so many, so much fun and very beautiful. No two will look alike!
