Missing My Baby…

My Bernina Artista 640E… my baby… sniff sniff… is in the quilt shop for repair and adjusting… sigh  I am really missing her!!  Sad smile 


Thank goodness, I have my old Bernina Virtuosa 160 to pull out of the closet and set up in my sewing table!  The clear insert doesn’t fit too well, but I’m making do!


So, I was able to finally quilt my Schnibbles quilt for January- “Full House”yesterday.


I made it from Kate Spain’s beautiful collection- “Good Fortune”. Love the pastels with pops of red orange!  Yowsza!!


I free-motion quilted it with meandering leaves.


I used a pretty hydrangea print from my stash for thebacking and a pretty swirly green fabric for the binding.


YAY!  Am so happy to get the first Schnibbles project for the new year completed before the last day of the month!!  Whew!!  Smile 


I can’t wait to find out what comes next!!  Smile

SOOOO, what did you sew on this weekend??



  1. Your quilt is soooo cute! I wished I had a Bernina to miss......grin.

  2. Oh Miss Polly,

    Our Get Well wishes to your machine. Go hug Yogi, that will make you feel much better.


  3. You did a very nice job finishing your houses quilt! Great quilting too btw!! I hope your machine is not in the workshop too long!!!!

  4. It is really beatuiful in those fabrics.

  5. Hi Polly OOh I really love your quilt especially in Kate Spain's Good Fortune it is one of my favorite lines right now. Your baby will be home soon.
    I don't know what is my problem these days but I just can't seem to get back to sewing. I think I wore myself out before christmas and right now I seem to want to lay in front of fire and read. My Son bought me a Kobo Reader for Christmas and the learning curve of downloading the books took a while but now that I finally figured it out I just want to read. I think I have post Christmas flu. lol

  6. I adore your Schnibbles full house. The fabrics are beautiful. I worked on a few small quilts and did some hand quilting. Had a great weekend!

  7. Your quilt is gorgeous! Love it and glad you have a back up machine!

  8. Your houses look so cheerful in your fabric choice. I still have my old 830 Bernina for a spare, she is my workhorse.

  9. I just got my Bernina back from the shop, and she is purring! I just love that machine. I finished quilting my girlfriends quilt which will be entered into our quilt show. I also worked on sashing for a quilt my mother had started, hoping to have that top finished this week.....we shall see! I love your houses and that orange pop!

  10. Beautiful quilt! Love those colors!

  11. Oh I would never part with my old Berninas. My original I got for my 21st, way back when,has gone to live with my DD2. Use it when I visit .
    But I have Mum's 830 here as my spare.

    I just love house blocks and the colours you used in your quilt are beautiful.

  12. Two Bernias.. Not to bad girl! Love the Schnibble, great fabric choice!

  13. Have no fear, it shall return to you in better health!! Love the little houses!

  14. Your 'Full House' is so yummy---I would like one JUST LIKE IT, Please!! ;D

  15. The orange does make it pop! Really nice!

  16. So pretty Polly - I just love those houses - and the bright cheery fabric you used! Hope your baby is home soon :)!!

  17. Such a cute pattern, and I love those fabrics!
    Should be working on February's BOM... gotta get off this computer! ;-)

  18. My bernina is also one of my most treasured possessions! I had sooo many sewing projects on my TO DO LIST that i drew up at the beginning of the year only to have life put a spanner in the works but your completed quilt has given me the shove to just make time! Love the quilt btw!

  19. I'm keeping a good thought for a speedy recovery for your Bernina. I have one in the shop right now too so I feel your pain. :)

    Just as a girl can't have too many Berninas, she also can't have enough Kate Spain fabric. I love your Good Fortune Full House even though it confirms the fact that I don't have enough of this collection.

    Your quilt is gorgeous!

  20. Your Full House is beautiful! It really caught my eye! I love how you used blue for the sky and white for the sashing! Very nice :-) I have some Good Fortune charm packs that I'm going to have to get out after seeing this!

  21. Your full house quilt is just precious. :0)

  22. I wanted to let you know how much I enjoy your blog. I'm honoring you with the Versatile Blogger award.

  23. Love the pattern, and the colours are gorgeous! :)


Thank you sooooooo very much for taking the time to leave a comment! I am always happy to know that someone is reading my ramblings!! Polly :-)
