52 Shades of Quilting

KennyKreations is combining with Bernina and Bowerbird Fabrics to produce this beautiful quilt.

We are using Nick’s Surf Mist colorway pack of 12 fat quarters, plus some additional Celestial blue fabric for the sashing and borders.

This quilt has 52 blocks, and because we need to get some practice with our new copy of Bernina’s Embroidery Software – Designer 8, we are digitizing 52 different quilting patterns.

All of the blocks will be embroidered in the hoop and stitched together quilt-as-you-go, with 1/2″ sashing.

Block sizes are 4 x 4″, 8 x 8″, 4 x 8″, 12 x 4″

Stay tuned for fabric details and quilting blocks.




I have now stitched four of the quilt blocks

Quilt Designs and Bowl Wraps

In the Southern Hemisphere, we are now well in Autumn, the weather is turning cold and I am making lots of heart-warming soups – pea and ham, apple and pumpkin…

When we heat the soup in the microwave, the bowls get quite hot, so I am making some Bowl Wraps for them.

I digitized a quilting design for the wraps, and stitched it on the red fabric. I think the pattern is a little too tight, so revised it and made it bigger for the colored bowl wrap.

I used batik fabrics and backed them with cotton batting/wadding. They work beautifully!

You can download the quilting design and instructions here!

You will find some additional quilting designs for sale on our website.


Bernina Australia has provided KennyKreations with a copy of Bernina Embroidery Software – Designer 8.

I am working on a set of quilting designs, using the Bernina Software. The quilting designs for these Bowl Wraps were created in Designer 8.
