Testing out Nina

Well that's what I like to call her... Original eh?  She is a Bernina B780... originally shown HeRe.
I used a few different blanket type stitches... Then used a hand quilting look-alike stitch... Then onto some FMQ. I traced the flowers on the fabric background & found it fairly easy for the first attempt on this new machine. It's NoT perfect by a  l-o-n-g  way... but it's satisfactory.
So... I give a thumbs up for Nina.... yeah.
And another Blanket of Love goes into the 2016 box...
A tick on the Scrap Busting Challenge column... yeah.

I love the blanket stitch. I am very tempted to buy myself a new machine just so I can do blanket stitch-- as my machine doesn't do it! Enjoy your new machine.

Hurrah for your NINA! My machine which will remain nameless is going to be sacrificed to the Singer Machine Gods via fire...it's the ONLY way!

Love the flowery design too, I'm still in love with doing it by hand, but DO appreciate a nice machine quilt as well.
