Hi - I won this new Bernina from the Quilt Across Texas. Out of 94 stores, I went to 72 in 8 days. Over 1700 miles driving across the largest state in the country. Would have loved to make it to all the stores. Met a great deal of friendly, helpful quilters.

The site also has alternative ways to change up the look a bit and links to pictures of other quilts made with this pattern. Overall, a very elegant design...reminds me of stained glass! Too nice of a pattern to not share...enjoy!
