Bernina Club - Bolster Cushion

Today was our first Bernina Club. We were fortunate to have Thea Horsman from Bernina to teach this class today which was the Bolster Cushion. In this class we got to explore stitch building, thread couching, corded pin tucks and piping. Bernina Club is a great way to learn more about your Bernina Sewing Machine and to enjoy a day of sewing with a project either near finished or finished.

Here is Thea with two of the centre stitched pieces

These are some sample of the ladies centre stitched panels. The centre stitched panels we learn how to use the pattern end and start and pattern repeat

This is a picture of some of my corded pin tucks,  it was alot of fun using the twin needle (make sure you test the twin needle for clearance in the pressure foot - I have learnt the hard way!)

And here is a picture of my finished bolster cushion.
