    Baby quilt for my DD's sister-in-law

    I found this cute kit on Keepsake Quilting and bought two, one for my DD's SIL and one for our DD if she decides to have another LOL since she loved it so much. I tried something new for me however, instead of FMQing an overall pattern, I bought a pantograph and traced it using my light box with Crayola Ultra-Wash fine line markers (in purple no less). I didn't want to quilt on the paper (pantographs are expensive for a one time use) and I didn't want to pick out those pesky papers. It worked great and took the stress out of figuring out what to do where etc. I know you people with longarms know the feeling but I don't have the room or desire to get one, so this was a good alternative. The background on the quilt was light enough to see without too much trouble. Now to figure out how to transfer to a darker quilt as I have a Harry Potter quilt I am finishing and would love to do a Wizard panto.
    Here is the baby quilt prior to quilting, unfortunately. It got sent off before I could get an after pic.

    That’s such a cute kit! I have seriously considered buying those panels. It seems to me that Laura from the Sew Very Easy tutorials uses white bar soap to mark dark fabrics. I’ve not yet tried the technique but I thought it was a good idea since it would be washable.

    T – is it True? H – is it Helpful? I – is it Inspiring? N – is it Necessary? K – is it Kind?

    Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.

    Cute quilt from an adorable panel. Who can resist those cute animals! I have been experimenting with pantograph patterns for use on my domestic machine. I have been drawing thm off on paper, pinning them to the quilt and stitch away. I do have to deal with the paper but that is OK with me. I like the process very much.

    This quilt is so charming. Parents will have fun teaching the baby the names of the animals in the panels.

    Precious quilt. So glad you shared your marking process. I have a sit down long arm. I'm going to have to have lines to follow. Hope I can freehand one day. I've been searching for all the different methods of marking.
