Modern Sundial Table Topper


For Betty Biberdorf, Moroccan tiles quickly jumped to mind for this issue envisioning appliqué and embroidery combined. Once she completed her design, the Modern Sundial emerged! Betty wanted to create a tile design that incorporated basic geometric shapes that were also larger than would fit in a 260 mm embroidery hoop – the largest width the DESIGNER RUBY™ 90 uses. This table topper then was created a quarter of the design for one hooping, then four parts are sewn together. The larger design could be used as a wall quilt, table topper or cushion cover. While the mySewnet™ PLATINUM Software was used to create the Modern Sundial embroidery, the image created in the Draw and Paint module may also be used as an appliqué pattern for creating the sundial tile. This article is an overview of how the Modern Sundial was created and not a pattern. Finished designs can be downloaded from mySewnet.com. If you wish to digitize your design the image is provided. Includes full material list including sewing feet, instructions on how to accomplish this pattern using HUSQVARNA® VIKING® DESIGNER RUBY™ 90 sewing and embroidery machine. Finished Measurements 26¾” x 26¾” [68 x 68cm]
