Experience tradition and distinctive design with a self-stitched quilt!

With the BERNINA 830 as your design partner, you can quilt and embroider this simply divine quilt with ease…
Embroider the Quilt
See below for layout details
Print templates for these designs:
Position the templates on the quilt and arrange according to the embroidery layout guide on page 3, or as desired.
TIP: Layout the designs using BERNINA Embroidery Software 6, then print templates of the finished groupings.
Start the embroidery process with the center wreath. Replace each template with a target sticker.
Cut a piece of Ultra Clean & Tear stabilizer large enough to hoop. Spray it with 505 Quilt Basting Spray and affix it to the back of the fabric where the embroidery design will be stitched. Hoop the fabric/stabilizer together in the Jumbo Hoop.
TIP: Use the Master Hooper® as an aid for trouble-free hooping!
Use the built-in basting box to baste around each embroidery design before stitching.
Embroider each design in the center wreath, removing the target sticker before stitching.
Remove the hand-basting stitching before embroidering, as it may be difficult to remove later.
TIP: For the BERNINA 830, change the presser foot height (in the embroidery settings) to 10mm; this allows for the extra height of the "velvet" stitches.
Embroider the trailing vines (design BE110210) from the corners toward the center.
Embroider the outer ring of eight roses (design BE110212).
Embroider the center top, bottom, and side designs.
When all embroidery is complete, remove the hand-basting stitches and basting boxes and clip the jump stitches.
Quilting in the Hoop
To assist in placement, print templates for these designs in BERNINA Embroidery Software Version 6:
BEC00704— one copy
Position the templates on the quilt and arrange according to the embroidery layout guide on pages 4 & 5, or as desired. Pin templates in place.
All the quilting designs are done without any stabilizer and by hooping all 3 layers of the quilt.
Use Isacord #0722 in both the needle and the bobbin for all the quilting designs. Thread the bobbin as you would for regular sewing. Adjust needle tension if needed.
Begin with the center motif, then the side motifs, next the diagonal motifs and finally the corner motifs.
All quilting designs line up with the basting lines except the corner quilting designs and the diagonal quilting designs. Layout the diagonal quilting designs as pictured on page 4.
Attach the BERNINA Stitch Regulator to the sewing machine. Using Isacord thread color 1352 in the needle and bobbin, stipple quilt the reminder of the quilt.
Trim the edges of the quilt as needed, squaring the corners and sides.
Sew the binding strips together and bind the quilt using your favorite binding method.
