Quick Fun Quilt

I mentioned last week that I was determined to make another Comfort Quilt for our quilt guild this year. My goal was to use the embroidery side of my Bernina to quilt one.

I began with playing with a sample. Not to waste anything, I turned the sample into a simple bag:
The quilt pattern is one from the OESD series, Bold & Beautiful, created for Bernina. For my comfort quilt, I combined this flower pattern with a circular pattern in the series.
I created a very simple quilt top with wool batting that would not conflict with the quilting. I am finding wool batting delightfully lightweight for quilting on my Bernina - very simple to manoeuvre and equally easy for my embroidery component to move around. I also like the loft that it produces for a lap quilt.

Here is the front of the quilt:
I pieced a simple back as well.

  1. Wonderful subtlety on the lap quilt, Judy. Wool batting is superb for being lightweight...I find I use it more and more.
