With this terrible heat driving me inside, I am working on a few small quilts. My basement is cool and comfortable, if a bit messy.
I really wish I had a magic genie to come in every night and straighten up my workspace, just the way I like it.
I will never be that really neat person, sigh.
Anyway, I wanted to share with you one of the ways that I add quilting lines on my work if I need to follow a line while I am quilting something.
Often I like to have a drawn line to follow when doing something like these flowers. If I don’t have the line to follow the line will become to straight and un-natural looking and so it helps if I can mark the curves. I discovered these colored pencils several years ago and now use them when doing this kind of quilting on my pieces.
I also discovered just recently that these lines can become permanent. I will share that next time.
Don’t forget that next week is a free give away on my blog for Jane Sassaman’s new book.
