    Quilting dot to dot

    The lady that made this quilt top did beautiful cross stitching and I had a grand time quilting dot to dot. I was glad I did not have to quilt in the cross stitching.

    Wow, what a lot of work that was. It is beautiful and your quilting is wonderful. What do you mean by quilting dot to dot?

    Very pretty! It looks like the hand quilting dot to dot covers the dots. Are they the kind that are supposed to wash out or are they permanent? This is the nicest example I've seen of those printed tops.

    I have done a few of those styles - different motifs - but they had the dots to follow to do the quilting. It was nice because you don't have to mark the quilt. And each time mine washed out with no problem. I have some more squares in a box somewhere. I believe Herschnerr's still sells them, I found mine a little over 20 years ago back in Kanas as a store much like a Woolworths or TG&Y.

    they should wash out. Don't wash your blocks to pre-shrink them before finishing them though. Ask me how I know!

    I remembered seeing a book a few years ago about that so I looked it up: http://www.amazon.com/Quilting-Dot-T.../dp/1574329022

    There is also a youtube:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H_t5SOmOrng

    and a Craftsy class with Angela Walters, some things on pinterest, etc. Just google Quilting Dot to Dot and you will find lots. That's where I am going back to right now. lol

    The cross stitching is beautiful. And your hand quilting is wonderful. Between the two of you you have created an awesome quilt!

    you probably know by now by the other post on here, the quilt top is marked for quilting by little dots. You just quilt following the design the dots make. They do wash out. I only do hand quilting and these are really easy to do. I thank you all for the compliments.

    Beautiful! I don't think I've seen that much cross-stitch on a quilt before. It's beautiful! And your quilting is lovely, it compliments it so nicely! Well done!
