Bernina Club - Aurora Borealis Cushion

Today's Bernina Club Class featured a great project - Aurora Borealis Cushion which the Bernina Circular Embroidery Foot was used.
The Bernina Circular Embroidery Foot is one of my favourite feet and it is always great when we have the opportunity to use this foot. The cushion's designed is based around the Drunkard Path pattern. Here are some samples of the blocks as they were sewn together.
Dianne used some decorative ric rak around her block.

Christine working on her 820. As it has a large stitching area, her blocks feature a larger decorative stitches (up to 9mm across). The Bernina 820 also has a large selection of stitches to choose from.

Once all the blocks are cut up, this is what the finish products look like. They then just need to have a back to them and to insert a pillow and they are all done.

Today we had the bonus some of the ladies brought in their finished work from the previous Bernina Club Classes. It is always great to see these projects finished. Most of the projects are nearly completed in the class - so when the ladies go home they only have a small amount of work to do to complete the projects. Bernina Club projects are all achievable and small projects so that they don't take a long time to complete, however you learn new skills and techniques in the class. The projects are also great as presents. The class fee includes the starter kit for the project which is why the samples are in similar fabrics.
These are Dianne's pieces from the Ruffle Bag Class and Zipper Class
