Quilted Holiday Stocking Banner - QUILTsocial project

>> Sunday, October 31, 2021

 This past week was my turn over at QUILTsocial to share a fun, flexible decor project. I designed a Holiday stocking banner using the PFAFF performance icon.

It's reversible too!

My first post explored using the Multi-Touch Screen on the PFAFF performance icon. It's the size of a tablet right on the machine and works like an assistant with built in User Guide and popups that keep you on the right track.

Then it was time to start decorating the stockings for the banner. The machine includes a Stabilizer Guide to help figure out when and what to use to make your stitches come out perfect every time.

I used one of my favorite techniques on the performance icon to make the heel of one of the stockings - the Radiant Stitch.

Each stocking was treated as its own little quilt and quilted in a different way. I'm getting better - and enjoying more! - free motion quilting thanks to this machine.

Putting the banner together was easy with the precise stitching guides and smooth needle bed of the performance icon. It was even easy to sew over the tucked in fabric at the end of the binding 'string'.

I had a lot of fun getting some holiday decor made early this week. You could use a different applique motif to make a banner for almost any occasion. Maybe you need a banner too!
