2019-12-02 Just finished my quilt last weekend. My granddoughter wanted her room re-decorated a few years ago and picked out these fabrics. But when the fabrics arrived, she didn`t like them anymore. The fabrics were allready washed and hung im my closet. So I've decided to make a simple and a bit larger quilt for myself and put my Bernina 740 to the test.

Yes. There is a also a 790 quilting edition, but it is the same size, has more features and quiltingstitches. It has 10 inches right from the needle. I got mine for 2.500€, a used machine, hugs

I love it, it reminds me of a Toffee apple colours. I'm sure once she has seen it finished she will want it. Great job all round. Love Chris

Well your Bernina passed the test run. The quilt turned out so great. I am glad you made something for you. Now you just need to hang on to it. 😊

My first impression was: it is a hybrid between my first treadle sewing machine and my industrial Juki plus a bit of electronics. It runs quietly and I can hear when it needs lubricating I love the foot no 10D. It`s so great for stitching in the ditch, ran the machina at medium speed to stitch down the squares

She will want it now! It's such pretty colors. How old is the grand daughter? I know it didn't take that long to get the fabrics in, so she sure changed her mind quick. Great job on your quilting too.

She is 9 now. When she was a toddler, her favorite colour was purple. In kindergarten the colours changed to pink, but only for one year. Now it is blue, turqoise and purple.
When I finished the top it looked too stark and I tried to come up with a quiltingpattern, but it did not work. Next morning: simple piecing+few colours=simple quilting= happy Kampfzwerg (battle dwarf). Love your window-frame-deer-quilt, so stunning, hugs

It is wonderful. Maybe she will inherit it some day! Meanwhile, you enjoy this gorgeous quilt.

She picked the Cotton Rainbow Quilt from Cozy Quilt Designs, but with a dark backround, her youngest brother wants a red-blue-white hunters star quilt
