Celebrate Hand Quilting.
Ever have those days where nothing goes as planned? Nothing worthy of real complaints, just annoying. Like running out of thread and having to go get some during the first rain storm in 5 months.
And I had bought some of these super expensive water soluble pencils to mark the quilt. When I was using the white on the dark, my complaint was that the lead kept breaking. I adapted my technique and smoothly copied my pattern onto the white fabric using the blue pencil..
Problem is, that the blue is hard to see while doing FMQ. And by the time I was done with the machine basting, sections of the markings had completely brushed off.
I eventually got it basted and most of it trimmed. No telling how it's going to turn out as I will have to re-draw or just guess on the stitching lines.
Maybe the rest of the week will go better.
