Using My New Bernina

I have my owner classes this weekend.  
The shop told me to sew on the machine so I would be able to come with questions.  
I feel like I have been putting her through her paces.  

I was doing some cleaning recently and 
ran across some older fabric sample cards with the Opal Owl line on them. 
I decided that they needed to become a quilt and thought the Double Slice would be a good choice.  So I cut up the fabric into 10" squares and realized I was a few short.  
So a friend of mine sent me a little bit of the Opal Owl fabric that she had and 
I was able to make it work.

I LOVE this pattern!  Just look at that fat little owl!  
This is one super busy quilt but I like it.

The next thing I decided to sew was another chenille blanket.
They are not difficult but they are tedious to sew.
OMGosh you guys.
Sewing the channels into this was SO.  MUCH . Easier!
With the larger throat space there was much less fabric wrangling.
Being able to use the auto thread cutter made it much quicker too.
I got the entire blankets channels done in under 2 hours.
This photo is not the best, but you can see the sewn lines and my choice of back fabric.

Tonight I will cut the channels open, square it up and bind it.  
Then pop it into the washer and dryer and watch the magic happen.  
Stay tuned to see the finish on Monday!

There is a link in my header to the tutorial but you can also use this link if you need to make one too.

Babies just love these! (So do their parents).

Have a great weekend!
