..giveaway Pfaff Ambition 1.5 Anyone? MONDAY OCT 24th....SOMEONE WILL WIN

And Yes the day has arrived ....SERIOUSLY.....the sewing machine that has had many of you holding back on commenting ( I know because you told me ) ....waiting for this day ....The chance to win a
Pfaff Ambition....their newest line ...
but before that.....let's see who is our guest today...mmmmm


My name is  Kim Novak, one of their educators and trainers from Pfaff .
 ( Hi Kim and welcome to our campaign) 

I’ll start by saying thank you to Madame Samm for allowing me to participate in the Wantobe Quilter Campaign.  I am especially excited because, even though I have been sewing for more than twenty years, I am a wantobe quilter too. I love the geometry of quilting and the FABRICS!! In fact, I have been building my “stash” for years.  I guess I’ve been a little nervous to take the plunge.  I have a great collection of books on quilting and consulted a few of my favorites for help in creating the table runner that I am sharing with you today.  Hope you like it!

Geometric Quilted Table Runner


This is what you will need!

Materials:



¼ yard Fabric 1/medium brown print
¼ yard Fabric 2/dark brown solid
⅛ yard Fabric 3/teal print
¼ yard Fabric 4/aqua print
⅜ yard Fabric 5/coral print
⅝ yard batting
⅝ yard backing fabric
Finished size:   32½” L x 18” W 



Cutting:

Fabric 1/medium brown print
12 pieces 3½” L x 4½" W
Fabric 2/dark brown solid
22 pieces 3½" L x 2½" W
Fabric 3/teal print
6 pieces 3½" L x 6½" W
Fabric 4/aqua print
6 pieces 3½" L x 6½" W
4 Pieces 3½" L x 4½" W
8 pieces 1¼" L x 2" W
4 pieces 3½" L x 1" W
Fabric 5/coral print
5 pieces 3½" L x 2½" W
4 pieces 2" L x 2" W
3 pieces 3¼” L x width of fabric (for binding)
Batting
36” L x 20” W
Backing
36” L x 20” W

Assembly:
I started by piecing the 4 sub-blocks with the coral squares so that I could easily assemble the rows. All seam allowances are ¼”. I love my ¼” foot for this – just line up the fabric with the edge of the foot and sew.  It is practically fool-proof.  Also, I used my dual feed for the entire project – piecing, quilting and binding.   
On my PFAFF® sewing machine, the IDT or dual feed is built-in.  Because it feeds from both the top and the bottom, my pieces don’t shift while I’m sewing and my seams always match!  


1. Attach an aqua rectangle (1¼" L x 2" W) to the top and bottom of each of the 2” coral squares. Press

2     Stitch a narrow aqua rectangle (3½" L x 1" W) to the right side of three of the pieced units.  The last narrow rectangle will be added to the left side of the remaining unit. Press.



3. To complete the sub-block, add a larger rectangle (3½" L x 4½" W) to the opposite side, framing the coral square. Press. Three of the finished sub-blocks will look like this; one will have the coral square on the left side.




The next step is to piece the rows.  There are four different rows in the table runner.

4.  Row A consists of two medium brown pieces, two dark brown pieces and one teal piece. 
Assemble according to the diagram and press all seams.

You will need a total of six of these rows.



5.     Row B is made up of two dark brown pieces, 1 aqua piece, 1 coral piece and one of the sub-blocks previously assembled.  Piece according to the diagram and press all seams.

You will need a total of three of these rows.


6. Row C is made up of two dark brown pieces, 1 aqua piece, 
1 coral piece and one of the sub-blocks previously assembled. 
Piece according to the diagram and press all seams
You need just one of these.


Now, piece the rows together to complete your top. 

7..     Attach 1 row B to the bottom of 1 row A. 
Continue to add rows according to the diagram.  Press.


Quilting
8   Position the backing fabric right side down on a flat surface and place batting on top.  Center the pieced top, right side up, on top of the batting.  Pin the layers together.
Note: the backing and batting are slightly larger than the pieced top at this point.  We will trim the layers after quilting.

9    Quilt the layers together.
I created a stitch sequence on my PFAFF® sewing machine that I used to quilt the layers. It consisted of @ 70 straight stitches and 15 zigzag stitches. I saved this combination to the personal menu on my machine so I could use it again. I sewed it in vertical rows approximately every ½”, starting at the center and working out to either side. Because the table runner is much longer than the sequence, it will repeat itself over and over down the length. I started the new row wherever I left off in the previous row, which resulted in a random placement of the zigzag pattern.  





You can create a similar look if your machine has the ability to program stitches.
An Open-Toe foot provides great visibility – especially if you are trying to follow a marked line.

Finishing
10..     When the quilting is complete, trim the layers even with the top and add binding.



VERYYYYYY Interesing tutorial...won't you agree..?
I bet many of you can whip this up with this
latest greatest best machine.....If it was yours!

This Giveaway today is for all of YOU....
Anyone and Everyone has the chance to win this...

LaVergne, TN.— Sewers seeking precision and control can now have access to the key features of the PFAFF® brand at a lower price point, thanks to the newly unveiled PFAFF®  ambition™ line of computerized sewing machines.  PFAFF®, a leading global brand of premier sewing and embroidery machines, announced today the introduction of its new PFAFF® ambition™ line of sewing machines, which boasts the unique PFAFF® IDT (Integrated Dual Feed) feature.

·         200 mm sewing space – A sewing area of 200mm to the right of the needle easily accommodates large volumes of fabric for bigger projects.
·         Automatic bobbin thread sensor – The sensor, only available in the PFAFF® ambition1.5 sewing machine, alerts the sewer when the bobbin is running low.

The PFAFF® ambition™ line will be sold exclusively at authorized PFAFF® dealers nationwide. Request a demonstration of the PFAFF® ambition 1.5 sewing machine at a local PFAFF® dealer from June 1, 2011 through June 31, 2011 to be entered to win a new PFAFF® ambition 1.5 sewing machine, plus six of the most popular PFAFF® presser feet.

  1. I love this table runner and think the dimensional quality of it is intriguing. I do understand Kim's reluctance to consider herself a "quilter" but I'd say this project definitely put her into that category.

  2. Hmm - just sent my comment, and it's not appearing - wonder if there are Blogger difficulties. As I don't want to miss this opportunity, am sending another one.
    I would love, love, this machine - Pfaff is MY BRAND! I have a 20 year-old Pfaff Creative, and started my sewing career on my mom's Pfaff hand-crank (later converted to motor - which didn't do the machine much good in the end, but it worked it's way through our wardrobes over the years).
    Thankyou Madame Samm for this Campaign. ....Margaret (sponsored by Deonn at Quiltscapes)

    I love Pfaff, I really do. I have a Select 3.0 and I can not get over how much IDT has changed sewing and especially quilting for me. Someone is going to get very lucky.

  24. It's amazing that we can make our dream come true with you, Madame Samm. You give us a chance to win gorgeous fabrics, fantastic furnishings and accessories necessary to create a quilt. Every day I visit your blog, and despite the giveaways are really sensational, I very rarely take part in them. Not everything is necessary for me to possess, so I do not send my applications every time. When I saw today that there was a chance to win a sewing machine, I felt a great joy in my heart. I do not just dream about a new sewing machine, but I really need it; the one I have is no longer suitable. It cannot be fixed at all. The only thing it can still do is the straight stitch... Unfortunately, buying a new machine is too expensive for me so I hope that this time you'll choose me:) I greet you very warmly!!
    Ps.I subscribed to the newsletter and I am your follower all the time:)

  63. that dual feed sounds very useful - my wife helps me keep everything in-line at the moment!

    This sounds a handy tutorial too, as I was just challenged to do a modern Christmas table runner, and as I've never done a table runner, modern or otherwise, I need guidance! I probably can't follow the diagrams for the layout on this one but maybe I can base my own layout on the descriptions here... I'll let you know how I get on :)

    Awesome giveaway, thanks!

  91. Since my birthday is next week and my Pfaff is so old that it wasn't a choice on their newsletter sign-up, I really do NEED a newer machine! Of course I won't let go of my old one. I love my Pfaff! Of course I would love the new one too...and give it a good home! I will pet it and pat it and shine it up and keep it clean and call it George. ;)

Will I keep my fingers crossed? Well I will tell you that everything that I have doubles of I will cross all week-end...lol Kim I really enjoyed your tutorial and the geometric look, I think it would look awesome on my table and will give it a go.

    ReplyDelete
  131. Oh, how I would love to win. My machine, which I purchased used from a shop not to very long ago, gets stuck on zigzag and uses about 1/2 spool of thread every time trying to get back to a straight stick. Shop won't take back and says, we'll sell you a new one. If I had the cash for a new one, I wouldn't have gotten the other!

  145. That's a neat table runner. I find the straight/zigzag stitch combo a rather striking little detail. And oh my goodness that sewing machine! It looks amazing. To be honest my mother could use a machine like that. She's fallen out of sewing since her's broke 5 years ago and its a real shame. Thanks for the great ideas/giveaways! (I'm a follower)

  148. Thank you so much for the table runner pattern. I'm going to try it in some cute winter fabrics with snowmen that I can use through the entire winter and holiday season. I've been looking for the right pattern and I think this is it. I love my little Pfaff machine but it is a smaller basic machine and I would so love to have one with a longer throat to do all of my sewing on, but especially to make my free motion quilting easier. AND the low bobbin sensor...oh my gosh, how great would that be? I can tell anyone that hasn't used a machine with the 'dual feed' system on it, you will absolutely love it. Thanks so much for your generosity Kim and of course Pfaff. Truly a wonderful giveaway. I'll be keeping my fingers crossed. Good Luck Everyone!!! Hugs all around...

  158. Hi! I'm a follower of yours and I signed up to receive the Pfaff newsletter (though I didn't get a confirmation after the screen did the little red bars for processing- I hope it went through).

    This would be an AMAZING prize to win. Wow!

    Also- I LOVE the quilting stitch in the tuturial. That is such a clever idea to save a stitch sequence like that! My current machine won't save as many stitches as this one, so I'd have to make it smaller unless you pick me to win :)

    ReplyDelete
  159. I am a follower and just signed up for the Pfaff newsletter. Oh, I want this one!!!

  160. I subscribed and of course follow. Thanks for the really cute tutorial, love the colors she used and thanks to Pfaff for such an amazing prize.

    ReplyDelete
  161. Wow. That definitely looks like an impressive machine and one that any of us would be thrilled to give it a very good home. I sure know I would. I'd be thrilled to have a new machine which has so much more space to the right of the needle like this one has. It is really nice that this machine will warn you when the bobbin is running low rather than when it's totally out as most machines do. That's awesome.

    I was sure I already receive the Pfaff newsletter but did go sign up for that. I am not sure what it was doing however because when I entered all my info and then clicked 'subscribe' all it did was say 'update in progress' for a few seconds and then just sat there. The screen never left with my info still viewable and there's no warning or acknowledgement so I don't know what just happened. I'm assuming because it said update in progress that possibly I am already subscribed. I did click three different times with each doing the same as before. And of course, I am subscribed/following you here.

    Thank you for the awesome table runner. I love the look of simplicity of it. SO many possibilities with that runner pattern.

With the popularity of this blog and the number of postings, there's just a slight chance that I would win this Pfaff machine but I do want to tell you how much I have enjoyed my Pfaff Triptonic 2020 machine - it's old but still sews. I would really like one that does some more advanced procedures thought so "pick me!"
