Quilted French Braid Table Runner

Braided Table Runner

The French Braid is a beautiful and easy piecing project ranking high on the wow scale and low on the difficulty scale. It is a good project for jelly rolls! So, get those jelly rolls out and begin a project that you can finish in an afternoon. I used rainbow colored batiks with 100% cotton batting. The table runner measures …

Point of View

Bernina 740

Bernina 740

So, the Bernina 765 SE is sold out and I can’t get one.  It was a such a good deal and I admit that I’m a bit disappointed. So, anyway, when we all realized that no more 765’s would be forthcoming, I decided to buy the 740. The 740 has no embroidery capabilities other than a few hundred decorative stitches. …
