Making My Mark

 I've got a lot of marking tools and they all got a workout today.

 I was trying to figure out how to quilt Daddio's Thangles.

 I thought an allover pattern would be best but I was too lazy to work that hard. I decided on this center motif instead. Getting it marked so I could see it was a challenge. It took more than one try and more than one tool.

Those of you who are quilters are probably laughing at my choice. I had no idea big motifs were so blankety blank hard.

Yikes. It's pretty wonky. In order to keep the stitches even you have to really go for it and I lose control if I go too fast. It's a good thing you can hardly see it. I am happy to say the second one went a little better. I probably should have practiced on something other than the quilt but it's too late now. I'm all in.


  1. Sometimes it's best to jump right in with both feet! It will look very nice! (We do love our tools, don't we?!)

  2. It looks FINE from here!!!! I think you picked a nice motif.

  3. I've only quilted small projects like runners and doll quilts on my machine. I admire those who do full-sized quilts.

  4. Looks great to me! That is a gorgeous quilt.

  5. I think it looks absolutely wonderful. And I had no idea there were that many tools to mark quilts. I have one pencil and that’s it.
