Chicken Divan Block

8 07 2008

We are using the book Chicken Buffet by Linda Huber & Bonnie Collins to digitize a block every other month as part of software club.  I stitched out my test of “Chicken Divan” today.  Here she is

I also recorded the digitizing process and loaded the videos on YouTube.  It is in five parts to deal with the size constraint.

Part 1

Part 2

Part 3

Part 4

Part 5

I also uploaded the videos in a webshots album.  I’m trying to find some way to have better quality on the web.  I don’t know that webshots did it, but you can be the judge.

I talk about digitizing the fringe on the lamp in the video, but I didn’t mention that the bobbin thread under the fringe needs to be clipped after the block is finished.

I just discovered your sight. It is great. When Bernina first put out the software I taught it by default as I was the only person interested that also knew computers. It was a challange as we did not have all the wonderful “gismos” or information we have now.

You are a woman after my own heart. You are a Christian. You love Embroidery, quilting, and scrapbooking.

Keep up the good work!

Thanks so much for this tutorial. It is fascinating and you are so kind to share.
I have had the program for a while now and have done quite a bit but have still a lot to learn about it.

Thank you

This was wonderful, I am looking for software to do just what you did. I came by this site accidently. I don’t have a Bernia Machine, I will still look to see if the program software runs on the machine I own. I am new but I have my own art work and wish to ditizies it. You made it look
possible even for a beginner. Thanks again,
