I decided to take a break from the needle turn applique and do a bit of the next part of the rose quilt. I am using #8 perle cotton thread to do the chain stitching
I was going to make a template to mark the design but I decided to do it by eye. I am using a yellow Crayola washable marker so the yellow tint you see is that. It will wash out.
Here are a bunch of pictures (click pictures to enlarge)
I have a few more additions planned after I finish this and then I can get to the hand quilting.
