A Day with Nina

Last Friday, my LQS Sew Original sponsored a day with Nina McVeigh to learn more about the Bernina quilting frame and Quilter’s Creative Touch. Nina is a wonderful Bernina educator and I was very excited to meet her!


It was interesting to see Creative Touch in action. And Nina had loads of ideas to make it your own design.


Her quilts were amazing!! This whole cloth left me speechless. It is just awesome!!


I love this criss cross design. These patterns are from One Song Needle Arts.


She brought a lot of samples of her amazingness!


And the best part if the presentation was a little segment on machine binding techniques. I’m usually a strict hand binding person, but if I can get good looking machine binding, I’m open to it. This was a cool technique she does with yarn. (More on this later!)


And this version with ric rac which is adorable.


And the bias binder! I have one, but I have definitely not yet mastered it looking perfect!


She did this beautiful decorative look on a pillow. Love!!


Her pillows were inspiring!


She used dual thread for this look.


Gorgeous quilting!!


It was a great day! And Nina was just as awesome as I had hoped!! If you ever have a chance to take a class from her, do it! After class, I headed to Chapel Hill for Carolyn Friedlander!! More on that soon!

  1. I have seen Nina in many videos and she is AWESOME! She has so much knowledge and is a great teacher (explains each step so well), I would love to be able to take a class from her…..I envy you that you had that opportunity :)

  2. I really hate that I missed that. I signed up for the last 2 times that she was scheduled to come. Was not able to come this time. Thanks for posting this information.
