    Thank you for the links...I noticed that their flowers really do not look much different than mine...

    I think it's actually a different attachment that makes the spirograph type flowers. It's been awhile, and can't remember the name. Will link it if I can find it.

    Edit: Maybe not. I did find this Bernina circular attachment which can be used to make spirograph type designs.

    You use a loopy straight stitch to get a loopy round. You know, like a scallop stitch.

    I think I read a used fabric softener sheet can be used as stabilizer.

    If you have one of these and can make FLOWERS with it, please, please, please tell me what I am doing wrong!

    In my pix are the samples I did the other night.
    The fabric is layered with batting..I did NOT like just a double layer of fabric..it preferred the batting sandwich! That pink thread is a vintage varigated DMC embroidery thread that is 50wt. As you can see on the Ultrasuede, the pink sunk in and sort got lost. I had to use a heavier weight thread on the ultrasuede, but it did fine with NO stabilizer...

    JUST no flowers...cute circular designs, but I want the big spirograph flowers they say you can make with this thing!
    I think that maybe I have the same "flower" attachment. I can't make anything bigger than 1 3/4 " with it. It was a great disapointment! Also, the fabric has to twirl around & that won't work too well using it to quilt on a quilt............ a waste of $$ :thumbdown:

    I don't think it is a waste of money, it just has limitations on its uses. You would definately have to use it in a block and NOT on quilting! I got mine to use for decorative stitches on pockets, etc for bags I make, or mug rugs..it will work fine for that...I don't think even the circular attachment would work on quilting...
