baby boy blanket ~ free motion couching

hey folks,

it’s pretty simple.  {if you have a bernina and a foot like this one}, that is.

it’s just a flannel blanket, which was one piece of flannel, and another piece of minkee fabric, sewn right sides together, then turned right side out.  it wasn’t made by me, but a special request from a friend of mine, asking me to add some personality with personalization on this baby blanket.

so i got out my free motion couching foot, {bernina’s #43} and quilted the child’s name using a beautiful yarn, and free motion to make it fun, colorful, and charming. took me about 15-20 minutes.

a personalized baby blanket with the baby’s name, “kayden” free motion quilted

if you haven’t seen my little tutorial on this wonder foot… you can…  right… here.

and i believe bernina is now making this foot for their older machines, too!  {they got lots of requests for it}  so check out your bernina dealer, and if you have a bernina machine that is over 12 years old… you should be able to get this foot, and have fun with this awesome technique!

thanks for coming by.  have a great one!

  1. I've been a little behind on blog reading. I came across this post at the perfect time. Today, I am going to finish a baby quilt and I was planning to quilt the baby's name on it. Also, I just purchased a free-motion couching foot for my Janome 7700 but haven't had a chance to play with it yet. Guess what I'm going to do? Thank you for the idea!
