Drawing on the Quilt

Yesterday, I actually started drawing my design on the quilt.  It is really quite fun to put it on perfectly.
With my blue markers I can always wash it off if I need to, but that does slow the timing down as it has to dry first before I put more on.
 I divided my cloth into eights to make it easy to put this design element on each portion.  I  traced it from my paper pattern.

Then I folded the fabric in half to make it easier to work 

and started drawing arcs for feathers.  I am using an oval casserole dish for perfect arcs. I completed 1/4 of these arcs so onward ho! for today.


  1. Ha! I love to use kitchen tools in the sewing room. Will there be any piecing? or just a solid color fabric?

  2. oh this is going to be lovely!

  3. Good for you Elaine !! The design is very pretty I've just never had the courage to do a whole cloth. Can't wait to see how it comes out.


I love hearing from you. Please feel free to leave a comment.
