Hello September!

Oh September, I welcome you with open arms! Just a month away from Fall International Quilt Market, can you believe that? I think it was yesterday that I was at Salt Lake City presenting my upcoming collection, Heartland. And I remember saying, very clearly, that September is so far away to receive my collection, and now we are in September! Wow, time does fly by when you are having fun. For this month's wallpaper, I wanted to use something soft and fun at the same time. So I went for "Dulcet Path Pastell" and "Droppar Moondust" These two prints, gives the soft hues and joyful feel that I was looking for. 


Don't forget to download your iPhone wallpaper also!

Presser Foot of the Month: Zipper Foot 4D

Hello makers! 

What a weekend! Filled with rain but happy that Gaston didn't reach Miami so bad. With that being said, for this Presser Foot of the Month segment I decided to go for the Zipper Foot 4D! Because it makes it super easy the work of inserting zippers. It's narrow and centrally placed toe permits this zipper foot to get closer to the zipper coils which allows to attach the fabric securely.


Due to it's narrow shape, the Zipper Foot 4D is also perfect for attaching pipping and snap tapes and also, edge stitching! How awesome is that! I used my zipper 4D for every project that requires zippers or pipping but never thought of the edge stitching.....I'm going to start implementing that as well! Love the Presser Foot of the Month segment because is a learning experience and it's never to late to learn!



Hope you lovelies enjoyed this month segment of the Presser Foot of the Month!

The Gypsy Queen Pillow Case

Hello everyone!

Last week, I was organizing my sewing room and came across so many cute fabric stashes from Artisan Fabrics and some from Denim Studio by AGF, so I decided to put them to good use. I was thinking, bohemian and gypsy when I created the "Gypsy Queen Pillow Case". Like some of  you know, I am obsess with BERNINA's decorative stitches and I try to use them all!! Believe me, there are several.


But I really enjoy exploring every single one of them and decided to use these three, don't they blend perfectly with the design and the collections used? I love them ♥♥♥ This pillow case it's so easy to make and so much fun. I know I always say things like that, but when you do what you love....you just have fun☺☺


Get the full tutorial from the "Gypsy Queen Pillow Case" here and have fun sewing!




Until next time!
