This project was so much fun! I took a class at my local Bernina dealer's and made this Spring Leaves wall hanging. This project made excellent use of my machine's decorative stitches and was my first foray into couching with various nubby yarns and threads. I also used my embroidery software to draw the circles and pull the decorative stitches into embroidery for the half-circle borders. Others accomplished this same look using the circular embroidery tool. Lastly, we echo quilted the finished wall hanging using straight and decorative stitches. This was a great project to encourage me to play with different feet, a variety of thread and lots of different decorative stitches.

a variety of thread ...

You are venturing into scary territory, be careful lest you become a thread junkie (like me)!
