I know I said I was going to spend the weekend working on Winter Wonderland blocks, but I got a tad distracted! I thought it wouldn't take me long to put together this darling table-topper. Actually, putting it together was a breeze - but blanket stitching the appliques - now that's another story! Two projects, both with extensive blanket stitch - all I can say is it will be a loooong time before I attempt another similar project! I still need to put on the borders, then I will probably do an overall stipple on it just to get it done. It is pretty cute, don't you think?
I tried out a new (to me) foot on my Bernina 630 for the blanket stitching - the #23 Applique Foot. I think this foot was meant more for satin stitching, but it worked pretty well on the blanket stitch. Do any of you that have Bernina's have a favorite foot for machine applique?
