Sewing on my new machine has been nothing but amazing. I really love how smooth it is and its nice even stitches, both something my old machine was lacking. I had started this quilt at the beginning of July, hoping that I'd be able to finish it in time for my SILs 30th birthday. I greatly overestimated how fast I could put it all together and add that to broken sewing machine situation, and it sat out for a while before I bought my new Bernina. I finally finished it this morning and I have to say I wish that I weren't giving it as a gift. But, I know she'll really enjoy it so it is worth it in the end. The pattern, the zig-zag quilt, is from Denyse Schmidt's book, but I think it's a pretty standard pattern.
There are some more pictures on my flickr, if you're interested. There will be a lot more sewing posts this week. My sewing machine and I have been busy!
