She also had a little dog, and some flowers on the grass. The quilt was about 80 x 90. I used Pellon cotton batting, So Fine and Bottom Line threads. She wanted the Plumage panto, but the quilting doesn't show very well. I had heard

    I started this before Christmas but couldn't get back to it until the last couple of evenings. I still need to put on borders and think I'll do a 1" yellow border, 4 or 5" pattern border and then the dark gray binding.

    The fabric is Dear Stella Fabrics, Serengeti Maasai Mara.

  3. Marking a quilt

    by , 01-03-2013 at 08:22 PM
    Any tips on marking a quilt prior to home machine quilting? I am getting ready to machine quilt a flannel quilt (I am still in the practicing stage of machine quilting, but vow to get there!)

    Chalk wears off, pencil lead does not show, the blue water soluble pens don't show up on dark fabric. I had bought the clover white pen, but it does not work at all!

    Would appreciate any help. Thanks.

  6. How UFOs Reproduce

    by , 01-02-2013 at 01:08 PM
    Once upon a time a quilter goes into the LQS and purchases a few yards of fabric to make a beautiful quilt. The quilter begins cutting and working thru to make this quilt and it just doe snot look right so she goes to the lqs again, sees a better one to make and purchases the fabric or kit to make that one. Goes home to work studiously on this quilt because it is better, oh darn, not enough fabric so has to go to lqs again, purchases fabric for quilt, sees another, buys it, then oh my a new fabric ...

  8. Bernina BSR troubles

This seems to happen no matter whether I'm in mode 1 or 2. I'm to the point where I've given up on it and gone back to doing free motion quilting with an old-fashioned foot, and

    The pattern is called Indian Hatchet--I found it in an old Patchwork book I found at a used book store. I adapted it to paper piecing and increased the size to a 12 inch block.
