Welcome back to the BERNINA 125th Anniversary Quilt-Along! I’;m BERNINA Expert and Amanda Murphy and in this post we’;ll be working on the quilt’;s optional side border embroideries. This was originally scheduled for December but some of you have been such enthusiastic piecers and embroiderers we decided to post this step early!

We’;ll work on the corner border embroideries next month as scheduled. No worries if you aren’;t ready yet—these posts will remain up on We All Sew so you will have them when you need them!

I also made a video below showing you the entire process to make things simpler. Note that if you use the file (as opposed to substituting another embroidery motif) you can skip over the step of marking the motif’;s center because placement lines are included in the file!

I used metallic thread to embroider the original quilt motifspersonalized gifts for girlfriend, but you can also use Isacord for a quicker finish. If you use metallic thread you can find my tips for working with this thread in this post.

If you choose to substitute the embroidery with something smaller than a 133mm motif? make sure not to trim down the short edges of the triangle very much when finishing—just clean it up a bit!

That is it! I’;ll be back on December 5th to for a bit more piecing and December 19th to cover the last of the optional embroidery. In January we’;ll assemble our quilt top and in February we will cover the quilting.
