It’s hand quilting weather!

And I am ready for it!

Just marked the border of our community project & hope to sting together some stitching time tomorrow.


The marking was a challenge, with the calico blue & white.  I opted for pink & gave the new-ish Sewline graphite pencil a whirl.  Oh my, like a hot knife through butter!  It marks with such ease.  Not sure how easy it will be to see here in the pic, but should be good enough to see to quilt.



Our “Tennessee Puzzle” is going to be fabulous!

I have had a Sewline for a few months, and LOVE it. It is so easy to mark with templates for quilting, but also to mark to cut/sew half square triangles, and so much more. I have the black, and change to white or pink as needed. The marks are easy to erase, too, and wash out, as well. I have been grabbing it for marking dressmaking things, too. It doesn't snag the fabric, or pull it while tracing, either.

Another great marking option is crayola washable markers. I've used them on a few projects with great success. One was even left for a couple of months and no prob. As always, test with your fabrics first to be sure it will come out.
