Week 4 Marking the quilting design on your quilt top

Week 4 Marking the quilting design on your quilt top

I think you know already that I have made this quilt in several variations. I don’t know about you but I often have a picture of what I want to make but frustrated when the result doesn’t match my vision. I actually unpicked stitches when I did not like the way the quilting was going. I wanted a gentle curve across the quilt and I could not figure out how to get the line I wanted. It is easy to get lost on the way across the quilt and produce a jagged rather than soft curved line. This video describes how I would mark the quilt to get the result I wanted. (FYI I used the walking foot on my domestic machine to quilt.)

As an aside .. videography is still on a steep learning curve. We are trying!!

This second clip is about my quilt table set up.
