    I started today on the hand quilting of the flower border. I was too scared to mark it with anything, so my Mom came up with a great idea of printing the pattern on vellum. These are pics of my first flower done =D

    Now, all I have to figure out is what is vellum? Wiki had a great page and said this: "Modern "paper vellum" (vegetable vellum) is used for a variety of purposes, especially for plans, technical drawings, and blueprints." I'll have to give it a try, thanks. Where did you buy it?

    Vellum is see through paper...I dug it out of my scrapbook supplies :-)

    wow, how did I miss this? Must have been awfully busy the day it was posted. Many thanks for your description of the quilting. I love hexagon quilts and I will try this method to see if I can work up the nerve to quilt it. Wow, I bet that would be great doing the Double Irish Chain that I have been waiting to strike up the courage for SEVERAL years. Thank you and thank your mom!!!
