    Do it right the first time and you won't have to repeat. Repetition is tedious. Looks great.

    Love your flowers. Your applique is very well done and the cross-hatching sets it off beautifully. You should be proud of your work. Well done.

Just keep moving the tape (or replace with a new piece if needed) until you get to the corners. Then turn around and go corner to corner in the opposite direction. This method does not require any marking on the quilt which is why I like it. When there is appliqué along the way, I just stitch up to it and along the ditch edge of the appliqué to the next line and go back to the edge. I do the same at the edge of the quilt so that I don't have to start and start so often.

    I use painter's tape also. Works great for me.
    In my quilt lab!
