Comment from the Webmaster

Please see the detailed QandA PDF below. The quilt ends up about 66" x 66" and the pattern has instructions for extending this this using an outer Star border to 96" x 96").

The QandA PDF mentions Quilt Along 2021 is aimed at Advanced Beginner and above. I would add two words to that: Patience and Diligence! You will have a busy/satisfying eight months I am sure -- and, yet: Some of you will stop after the center medallion, some will stop after a particular month's border has been added -- and, if you DO stop before Month-8: You will have a beautiful piece for your home wall or bed! That, I am certain of: And - well worth the $25 or $95 (with tax) choice you make. Your time/effort is more valuable than the BOM cost and you will be much-rewarded (as I have seen come about as I followed-along the team's success as they created the store samples).

Bernina World of Sewing and Quilt Along 2021

  • Thank you! We have had a great time/response-to our offering of the 2021 Feathered Friends Quilt: A medallion style quilt designed by our own Sonja Shogren and Sona Thorburn. The focus fabrics came in four colorways - orange, pink, purple, and teal and you chose your color and your signing-up was wonderful - and appreciated.

    Now: The colorway choice as well as the extension option for your chosen colorway has been closed ("Sold Out") for 2021.

    The option for you to "Share the Journey" with us by using the Pattern Only option (further explained below) remains and the plan is for that option to continue to be available to those who have not already signed up as 2021 moves forward.

    Again: Thank you for your interest/participation at this point in the project -- and: We look forward during April-thru-November on seeing how you (the Participant) complete the 2021 Feathered Friends Quilt. It will be a busy/satisfying effort.


    • "Pattern Only" - Share the Journey - Option
      Due to demand -- and as a service to you - the store is offering those of you who may have missed the sign-up window a chance to "Share The Journey" with us during the 2021 Feathered Friends Quilt Along, April-thru-November, if that catches your fancy. You purchase the pattern only and use what fabric Colorway YOU decide for your piece (The pattern is based upon your using four shades: -- Dark, Medium, Lt-Medium and Light -- of one "Colorway" plus your Background fabric -- all of which combination YOU come up with). Other than purchasing the pattern ($20 plus tax) -- and, using "your own" fabric -- the monthly pattern/video availability together with any Social Networking/etc. you wish to participate in will be the same. The pattern (and the videos) will be available to you monthly; you would not receive the pattern "at one time"; pattern/video availability is over the eight months as with all of the Quilt Along offerings for 2021. Of course, we would love to work with you at our store and would assist you in fabric purchase, etc. -- and, our Web Shopping site is always available to you. If those do not work for your situation: We encourage you to support your local Quilt Shop if your "fabric stash" does not meet your 2021 objectives. Interested? Register, below.

  • At the end of your 8 month journey with your "Feathered Friends", the entire quilt (Size: About 66" x 66") will be ready for quilting.
