Simple Stipples for Another Week!


Love to Quilt? Freak Out about Stippling?  Then the Bernina 440Q will be your lifesaver.

All of its features offer complete control and precise adjustment.  With easy stitch selection, independent bobbin winder (wind without rethreading the machine), a great range of accessories, variable speed control and interactive display, this machine is the ideal patchworkers companion.

But its best feature is its built in Bernina Stitch Regulator – a unique system that detects your free-motion speed and adjusts the sewing speed accordingly, giving you even stitches and stress free stippling.

Normally $3299

Turn a Corner.

Adding binding to your quilt is the final touch to a lot of hard work so its important to finish it correctly.  One of the trickiest parts of attaching binding is doing the corners, so here is a run-down on how to get them nice and neat.

1:sew the seam right up to 1/4″ from the edge of the next side
2: pinch the binding to make a 45% triangle as you fold it around the corner, and press it out of the way to the left
3:start a new seam at the very top of the next edge
