Hurray, hurray, my new Bernina has arrived! At the end I got the B 720 and the free space right to the needle is absolutely perfect.
So over the last weekend I made a dust protection cover for the new machine. There is a cover provided by Bernina, but it is dark blue. But I need bright colors in my sewing room! Bright color fabrics = Kaffe Fassett Collective designs. I got out my stash collection and started cutting from each fabric a 4 1/2 inch square. At the end I cut double so many squares as needed. The idea was to make a rectangle of 6 x 7 squares.
After a busy afternoon with cutting, piecing and pressing – the dust protection top is ready to quilt.
This is a perfect small project to try out the new Bernina B 720 with the walking foot. I have used two different quilting threads. The red/pink variegated quilting thread is from King Tut, and the yellow one is from Gutermann Sulky.
Added some straps using a bias tape to knot the dust cover on the sides.
And a few colorful shots from the garden. This winter has been very mild, and we have had hardly any cold weather. Since weeks we have nice and warm sunny days, sometimes with some wind. Spring is here.
I started writing this blog post before the pandemic spread of the corona virus. At the moment our area is secure, but this can change any moment. My trip to Prague to visit my Mum has been cancelled – which I approve. If each of us can help a little, we all together can achieve a lot. So, I shouldn’t let sewing machine wait for a long time, it is time to sew. Get out the best of the situation!
