Somebody had fun with Cutwork!

imageInitially, I wanted to make the Rose of Sharon blocks using the AccuquiltGo! cutter.  Once I got the die home, I realized that the sizes of the shapes were not the same sizes as the shapes I was going to applique using my Rose of Sharon Crafter’s Collection and my embroidery machine.  It was back to the drawing board…<enter Bernina Cutwork Accessory and Software>!  SmileI cannot tell you how much fun I had turning these gorgeous embroidery designs into cutwork…not to mention the headache and handaches averted by not having to cut each teeny tiny shape by hand!  I hope you enjoy the pictures!  My little quilt is in Racine, and I’m working on another for the Decorah store as well.  WAY FUN!  -Suzie









Retreat #2 at Hotel Winneshiek

We had THE BEST time at Hotel Winneshiek this past weekend!  Everyone got a ton of projects completed, the food was wonderful, the dumbest notion contest was a blast, AND the continual pranking between Ardie and Marcia kept us all entertained and on our toes!  Please enjoy some of our pictures…
