That nice hand looking quilt stitch on the Bernina is very easy to accomplish. On the 1260, choose the feather stitch, set width to lowest size, length to longest size, balance 2X plus, and pressure to 7.5. Top thread needs to be a quilting mono filament, bottom a silk finished cotton. When you do the stitch, the top looks like an authentic hand running quilt stitch, the bottom a smooth chain stitch. The Bernina USA web site has a PDF file telling the adjustments on other Bernina models. The quilters edition machines have the stitch already programmed in, but it's very easy to set up on a normal machine.

I agree the bernina website isn't simple. I went to Sewing Studio/Bernina Generations/New Ideas for Older Berninas/Hand-looking Quilting Stitch to find the file. It gives clear information when you finally get there.

Ignore my comment above! I went back and searched & searched for the pdf, and finally found it. (The Bernina site has lots of information on it, but it is very poorly indexed.) Here's the url: http://www.berninausa.com/media/knowledgebase/berninagenerations/pdf/gen0004_2d8f.pdf

Thanks for the hint. I tried to find the pdf on the Bernina USA website, and could not find it. Can you tell me where it is on the site??
