progress.....and a new project


It's coming along.... slow but sure.   Ijust love it.
Yesterday I took a class at Christie's Quilting Boutique with Lisa Wilson Grant on Mariner's compass.  This is a paper pieced Mariner's Compass.  I discovered some great features of my BERNINA that help with paper piecing.  When you sew your paper piecing pieces, they always say you need to use a tighter stitch.     If you go to the Quilting Stitches on your machine, there is a preprogrammed stitch just for this purpose....
If you aren't sure what stitch it is,  use your help feature.  Touch the question mark, then the stitch,  
Here is my progress so far...
I have a ways to go.  I'm just making one block, Lisa framed hers on top of a map.   I hope I can find a map to use!  
Happy Sewing.
