April Bernina Club attendees viewed an inspirational trunk show featuring projects using the Twister and Lil Twister rulers along with a how-to demonstration and the fun "Go for the Burn" apron panel and coordinating fabric.

Karen demonstrated the Quilt Binding Express tool and explained the various applique techniques used in the "Applique After Hours" trunk show, including:

  • blanket stitch - also known as buttonhole and pin stitch
  • needle turned applique - gives a beautiful turned under edge
  • use fusible interfacing to create a fusible applique piece
  • determine if you want matching or contrasting thread
  • outline applique with decorative cord

The Twister and Lil Twister rulers come in three sizes along with how-to books and patterns to create amazing designs.
Create this fun owl pillowcase using a
panel and coordinating fabric in chevron and owl border print.
Have fun in the kitchen with the "Go for
the Burn" apron and coordinating fabric!  Start with the preprinted apron panel and line with a coordinating fabric to achieve
the look you see here.  We used left over chilis from the print to create a unique applique for our dish towel. 
Create this delightful apron using the Kwik Sew Fancy Apron pattern features matching aprons for 'mom, me and doll' - me being the little helper in the kitchen!
The pattern also features a pot holder in each size suitable for 'mom, me and doll.'
This beautiful "Peacock Quilt" is created using a double border fabric and a bit of fussy cutting.  Simplicity in piecing allows the fabric to be the focus of this quilt.
Create "The Bundle Bed" with pillows
and trendy chevron fabric and buttons. 
"Go for the Burn" apron panel
