I’ve been brainstorm HOW to mark this butterfly quilt. I’ve been stumped!! Hop in the car and head to mom’s for the holiday, and I drag out my newest quilt magazine. This one is American Patchwork and Quilting. In the tips page was my answer!! Many Many thanks to a Stephanie Ness from CA who submitted the tip! But some people need to see things in action. So here is my first pictorial tutorial. Here we go!
First, hoop up a piece of tulle in an embroidery hoop. Lay it on the pattern and trace with a permanent marker.
When you pick up the hoop, the pattern should be easily seen.
Once the ink has completely dried, lay it on your quilt. Retrace the lines using a fabric marker.
Pick up the tulle and inspect your work.
Then just stitch it out!
I hope this helps anyone looking for a new marking method. It’s working very very well for me!
Peace and Pieces, Amy
