I’ve had this block sitting around my sewing space for a couple of years now. It was a trial block that wasn’t used in the quilt so instead of letting it go to waste I’ve turned it into a nice little quilted table topper.

I used the?BERNINA Circular Embroidery?Attachment #83? as my guide tool.

Once you fuse your batting and backing and block together it’s ready to quilt!

Place BERNINA Circular Embroidery?Attachment #83?onto the machine, please look up on the BERNINA YouTube channel for help on tips and hints with this tool. Once you learn about this tool you will find lots of different uses for it.

For this particular use of quilting in circles we will start by placing the center pin right at one of inside points.

Once you have placed the pin where you want you can slide back and forth to see how large or small of a circle you would like to make. I?wanted my circle to go right over the middle of the block and I tested by doing a full circle to make sure the quilting would stay on the block how I wanted it to.

Every time you quilt your own quilts make sure you start by placing the needle down and up one time so it grabs and pulls both threads up. I started in the middle of the block.

Gently guide with your hands (but let the machine move the fabric).

Continue until you go back to where you began.

Clip the extra thread.

Repeat on all 4 inside points.

I wanted more quilting so I repeated around on the outside?eight more times with?four of the circles only being half circle.

Next we are going to trim off the extra batting. Move the backing away by folding it under you quilted block.

Next trim off the excess batting right up next to your quilted block (be careful not to cut the backing fabric).

Next trim down the backing fabric on all four sides to 1”.

Fold in edge of backing fabric to the quilt block.

Fold again so the it over laps the quilt block (like binding)accent pillow case baby burlap baby decoration, pin in place.

Fold in (dog ear) your corner fabric with the fold meeting up right next to the quilt block like shown in the picture.

Fold in again your fabric like the picture shown (fold in the raw edge right to the edge of the block like we did on the first side).

Fold in once again overlapping the quilt block (like the first side) but make sure your corner edge meets up at an angle to make a nice corner like the one show.

Pin in place.

Repeat on all sides and corners, and top stitch close to the binding’s edge.
