When I first started doing free motion machine quilting, I really didn’t want to take the time to mark my quilt tops and so I learned to do all kinds of continuous line quilting free motion quilting. That served me well for a very long time. But over time, we change, and our likes evolve, and I have started to do more marking on my quilt tops.
Here are a few process pictures of the designs that I marked on this top using a Clover white marker. I went through 2 1/2 markers marking this top. The top is 70″ x 70″.
