It was fun to see what readers liked in block choices....and see that readers have so similar likes as I do.
Now for quilting chat...
Over the last few days I have been working on machine quilting and honing my skills. I have tried a few methods for marking a pattern.
1. Tissue paper pattern. On this one you draw your design on tissue paper and then quilt through this. I didn't like it because, in my opinion, it screwed up the stitch tension and I had to readjust. Also, I thought the paper moved and I didn't get a nice line.
2. Pounce with stencils. I thought this was messy and I didn't like the dust that pouncing created. I don't need any more pollution in my lungs.
3. Tracing with stencils. Of the three methods, I thought this was the easiest to mark and follow. Hmmm....old methods seem to be good.
What are your marking methods?
