We had a fun Saturday class, making more SCARVES… All you need is Aqua Bond, Aqua film topping, some fun yarns, threads, fibers… and a free motion quilting foot.  See more about the products and some of the scarves I’ve made in an earlier post here.

  We had lots of fun exploring color options, design styles and placement ideas.  This is a GREAT project to get to know your machine; it was Penny’s first time free motioning on her new Bernina 380. She used YLI Variations polyester 35 weight thread in the top and bottom of her machine… and she used the bright orange variegated.  It was so GORGEOUS on her scarf!

Penny’s thread, ribbon and yarn selections…so far!

 Penny and  Joan both were very gracious to allow me to photograph them and their beautiful creations!  Thank you so much ladies!  It was a a fun class, and a pleasure to have you!

Joan chose to use YENMET metallic thread for the quilting on her scarf; she wound it BOTH the bottom and top, and loosened her top tension considerably.  It fed through her machine like clockwork!  She has a 30 year old Bernina!  It is STILL a workhorse!

Joan has her scarf under the machine and adds her free motion stitching!
