My niece will be getting married next year at the Round Barn in Waitsfield, VT. I am making her a Double Wedding Ring Quilt using John Flynn's strip piece method. My machine died so need to get it fix, in the mean time I am using my 1978 Bernina. It sews fine but don't want to do heavy sewing. I hope to hand quilt it if there is time and maybe she just might have to wait.
