Hi everyone. I became aware recently that there are quite a few quilters who use my chart I made years ago for my Bernina Q20 sitdown longarm (I have had mine now for over six years). His name is Fritz, by the way. We have a lovely time quilting and other free motion stitching together on a regular basis. So I have double checked the information I have on this chart and added a few notes at the end. I strongly suggest if you want to use this that you be sure to make adjustments for your own machine. There are factors that can make things different from machine to machine…weather, minor factory setting differences, what table you use, and on and on. But I think these settings are a pretty good place to start for you if you are a new owner of one of these fabulous machines. It would be the same for a Q16 too, by the way. Sew here it is. Download it if you wish and provide comments for improvement here on the blog. Share as you wish.
By the way, currently I am working on a new wool applique project that makes a nice pillow top for about a 20 x 20 decorator pillow. I am videoing this and will have a pattern too with both printed patterns and svg files for the appliques those of you who have digital cutters.
After that, however, I am planning on some videoing for working at the Q20…ruler work, free motion, and setting up and maintaining your Q20 or Q16. Like I said, I have had mine for over six years and I love how it sews. It almost seems better now than when I first got it, but I am thinking I am probably better at using it now than when I first got it. LOL
Sew happy everyone! Have fun in your studio and try out a little free motion stitching or quilting this weekend.
