The colorful and three dimensional bubble quilt is fun and easy to create. Add your own name, embroideries or just simply re-use some of your favorite t-shirts that you love and have worn out. As you do not need very big pieces for the bubbles you might have some left over fabric scraps you can use. Approximate finished size: 29½ x 53”.

Made with the all-new entry-level sewing and embroidery machine, the Designer Jade 35!
