    So pretty and just right for fall. Great job on the quilting. I'll have to try the painters tape idea.

    That is so gorgeous! How do you use the painters tape? As a measure, etc?

    I'd say your experiments were successful.

    Those are beautiful. Such a good idea. They really look like the coloration of fall leaves.

    This is beautiful. The batiks give it a natural look.

    I wish my first quilt looked as gorgeous as yours!!!! For some reason I never thought of using the blue tape for machine quilting. I have used it lots of times for hand quilting though. Thanks for such a nice idea.
