This is the foot Bernina made for use with their cutwork tool and software, but I love it for other reasons! This is Cut-work foot #44. I switched out to my go-to girl; the #29 clear free motion foot to finish most of the quilting, as the bigger plastic cup gets in my way visually when I want to do precise line quilting. But first, this is how it began, with a batik fabric, approximately a fat quarter size piece of fabric.
I originally thought it might work with the Three Creative Studios color palette challenge… which is a kind of watermelon green and red-pink tones. But I think it’s a bit too orangey for the colorway. But it was fun trying! Maybe next time?! By the way, I ordered some FABULOUS new hand-dyed material from Vicki Welsh. Have you seen her blog, her Etsy store… her FABRICS?! Beautiful.
Angelina, I love your blingy goodness! And of course, I cannot forget to mention it’s soul mate, my all-time favorite metallic-styled GLITTER thread (from Superior Threads. Hmmm uhm good! (Where’s that Campbell’s soup kid when I need him?!)
I used Glitter thread in a silver, and also in a grass green. I also chose some furry-fuzzy yarns in those same deep, dark and gorgeous tones of red, brown, green and turquoise as further embellishment. Free motion, and traditional couching techniques employed!
And of course, I couldn’t leave out the Rainbow and King Tut threads, or they would have hurt feelings! And I finished with a Razzle Dazzle in silver … just a few quilted lines of it.
I cut some slightly curvy edges with the rotary cutter, and with right sides together, added a facing type of finish. Trimmed the corners, cut a slit in the back, & turned it right side out; pressed it nice and neat. The quilt label will be fused over the slits in the fabric to cover them up.
So does it look like a sunrise? Perhaps a sunset? Do you think it’s looks like a desert? Bryce Canyon? (I hope?!) Tell me what you think…
I have another small piece of the same batik fabric, and I’m going to play with it next! Got a new, different idea in mind. I hope you will check back and see what I’ve got in the creating pot! When it’s finished maybe we should take a vote…a beauty contest perhaps? Maybe even a prize? Hmmm…. Sounds like a party to me! Yahoo Magoo!
“Bryce” is for sale in my Etsy shop. Thanks for stopping by, as always!
