I know I’m supposed to be terribly disappointed in the summer weather we’re having here in Sweden, and yes I have to admit that I do hope for some more sunshine and warmth in August. Still, I can’t deny that these bursts of rain makes me happy. Why? They make the veggie garden glow!

Strolling around in rubber boots with little Caspian picking juicy berries and firing up the grill in the evening (who cares if it’s gray and gloomy!?). Juicy grilled veggies and in this case even fruits can ignite that warm summer vibe in no time at all. Sounds appealing? Come on over! Just remember to bring some cozy knits.

In November we showed you how a ruffle attachment works, tucking little pleats into the fabric just before the needle stitches them in place. So what’s the different between a gathering foot and a ruffle? Right away you’ll notice that the gathering foot it just one piece, whereas the ruffle has many different pieces working together to pleat the fabric, and adjustments for setting the depth and frequency of the tucks. A gathering foot, such as BERNINA Gathering Foot #16, doesn’t have moving parts. But look closely and you’ll see that the sole of this foot doesn’t rest evenly on the feed dog. This causes the fabric to feed unevenly, forming gathers as it passes under the foot and is stitched by the needle. The amount of gathering is adjusted by changing the stitch length and needle tension, and is also affected by the weight and stiffness of the fabric. You may have noticed that the sole of the gathering foot has two layers; this is for stitching ruffles directly to a flat piece of fabric. Place the fabric to be gathered under the foot as usual, face up, and place the flat piece face down on top, through the slot. The fabric against the feed dog gathers, and the fabric in the slot stays flat. This foot is especially good for making ruffles for garments and heirloom sewing projects.

Rebekah from A Bit of Sunshine is here to share this ADORABLE Pony Silhouette Hoodie Tutorial with us! And since I predict that horses are the next hot animal trend (watch out foxes!) I’m especially excited. So grab your plain boring hoodie with zero appliqued ponies and prepare to make it fabulous.

Hello fellow sewing-enthusiasts! I am so excited to share this quilt-a-long project with you here at WeAllSew. I learned to make quilts from my mom when I was growing up. About fifteen years ago I began doing it in earnest and took classes to broaden my skills. I have since worked in a quilt shop where I taught beginning quilting classes. I still love to teach quilting basics?on my blog, Diary of a Quilter, which I have been writing for over five years now.
