As I now have my "All singing all dancing" Bernina 440QE waiting for me in my Christmas box my next thoughts are " Heeeeellllpp" well not really but well maybe yes!!! I paint in acrylics but mainly abstracts spurred by either nature or things I have seem. Always having been interested in fabric from a small girl, I would now like to tranfer some of these ideas into mini quilts or wall hangings. Anyone able to recommend books fir appliqué. That is probably the way forward for me. Or any other ideas or recommentations would be gratefully received. Had to look up " batting" now need to know from where to buy it.
