    And two, would you mind walking us through how you hand mark your tops before layering and quilting. I have seen it done many different ways, and would particularly enjoy hearing how you get it to all line up.
    Sorry for answering so late but I had a very, very busy weekend and to spare time to do it earlier.

    I don't use a frame for hand quilting, I work on a 18" hoop on a stand (Jasmine). I do all the markings "as you go" - mostly starting in the middle of the quilt (on this one I started on the right edge in the middle of the big motiv) and working to the outer edges. Because I work in a hoop the markings rub off quite easily when using watercolor pencil, therefore this way is the best for me.
    When I quilt the middle I often don't know how I will do the borders. The ideas for it develop during the process of quilting.

    Elizabeth, I do need a ruler for marking straight lines! :-) Some of my designs are quilted freehand but I also use stencils or make them by myself out of cardbord.

I made three quilts in that longish size for the exhibition. For this one I used just half of a complete wholecloth design- just for fun!
    Wow! Your quilt is gorgeous!

    I don't use a special ruler... I take the one you normally use for patchwork, the Omingrid one with the length of 15 x 30 cm or 6 x 24 inch. That works fine!
