    Thanks for the nice comments.

    Kathy, Lesley, Lynnie, Patti, Judy and Elle, I love all your blocks they are all very different from each other, the colors are all so rich, it will be interesting to see how all these show when completed.

    Elle - in response to your question, the permanent marking pen I am using is "Pigma Micron - 01 archival ink, 0.25 mm line width - made by Sakura Color products corp." it is also available in wider line widths. I use these pens on the completed block, I like the detail they provide. They are not easy for me to locate - not many stores handle this product.
    I also use "Staedler Mars Lumpgraph -2H pencils, which do not rub off on your hands (for tracing)- these are drafting items used when drawing by draftsmen.

    What's GMFG? which ones? Most of what I'm using is leftover from Judy Neimeyer project (Hawaiian star)

    mmm, candi, these colors are going to play so well with the others, woo hoo. :thumbup:
    The wonderful thing about all the clever things you all come up with...we all learn for future use.
    Course I don't see meece-self trying the bobbin work just yet.
    I'm curious...what makes doing it from the bobbin, so different?
    Your sewing from the back side right?
    Somebody really ought to come up with a stem stitch look alike on these machines,...but then...the mouse would have to have a new machine,...can't do that! (need fabrics and notions more...and grandbaby outings!!! :XD: )

    Roxanne, it just occurred to me yesterday...here I was cutting all the hearts out from the same fabric..why not make it one hearty flower? :mrgreen: It looks ok on this block I think.

    Mousie, I am using a metallic DMC thread, double strand, no way to put it through the needle and that is why it goes in the bobbin. Yes, you work from the back. It is a little like machine applique, you are following lines and curves,the most difficult part about it is that you can't see your applique pieces so I have a couple of blocks where the embroidery lines don't play too nicely with the appliqué. I am finding it much easier to do the bobbin work first because then I can appliqué my pieces forcing them to play nice with bobbin work already in place. :mrgreen: and I think the double strand bobbin work looks a lot like the stem stitch, I have been meaning to play with it using some decorative stitches, but these skeins are expensive,lol, so I have To find something cheaper to play with :XD:

    that's good info, candi. I'm just not that brave a mouse.
    When I first started quilting...
    It took me forty forevers to cut my fabric...I'm talking months!
    I had been sewing since I was 10!
    Just hate messing things up, but it's been a real learning experience with quilting.
    Ye shall mess up, and you shall learn to live with it and go forward if you want to quilt.
    Good thing you can also make quilts out of scraps :XD:
