    FelineFanatic. Any chance of a tute on how to plan free motion quilting same as you have just done but a bit more. I have just leant more reading your bit than any book utube or class.
    Aww, that is so sweet of you to say. Sometimes the quilts just speak to me and sometimes I have to commune with them for quite a while. NYGal's beautiful quilt was a regular chatterbox. LOL.
    I don't think I would even begin to know how to write a tute on something like that. It helps to be a little crazy too. LOL

That way you can see clearly your block and what it's going to look like with very little trouble.When your done and have something you like you can trace on tissue paper or transfer any way you prefer.If you use tissue paper use either markers that wash out or maybe the new frixion pens 've been hearing about on the tissue. That way if you stay on the lines and it gets stitched in and smears slightly when you are plucking it out you are safe
    You can also print out ths photo (low resolution is fine ) on regular printer paper and just doodle on it till you see a design emerge that you like. That's what I generally do when I don't have an immediate inspiration.
