Being referred to as a celebrity was nice. I may get the big head.
I have been busy making pillows for my sister’s birthday. This is a big birthday. The applique pillow above with the bird on it gives you a sneak preview of the next BOM.
I had not done pillows in years. The ruffle one I did the hard way by sewing two rows of basting stitches and then gathering the stitches by hand. The gathering foot I had was for my old Bernina. I advise you to use a gathering or ruffle attachment for your machine. It took way too long to do it the old way.
The gathered cording was tedious. I found out after I did the cording that there was also a foot to make gathering on cording easier. You all probably all ready knew this. All I can say is I make quilts and seldom have the time to make anything else. I think I need to take a refresher class on the attachments for my Bernina. No telling what else is out there.
