I was planning to get one of those beautiful dyed panels marked for quilting this weekend but I got sidetracked with a new idea. I was working through my pile of fabric and came across this very dark blue upholstery fabric that is 60 inches wide and decided to cut a 60 inch square to save out for making a quilt (I bought it for purses). Well I couldn’t help myself and I got to work on a design.
I drew this on with chalk (the chalkboard kind). It is just to get the basic design onto the fabric , the chalk just rubs off which makes the drawing easier so I can easily erase. Once I am happy with the design I will go back with a white wash away marker and re-mark it. The white marker won’t rub off like the chalk so I wont loose all my lines when I start quilting it.
I finished the quilting on another small leather quilt (18×24) I call it “some things bug me”
I got a new to me machine a few weeks ago and I gave it a tune up (it was totally frozen up ).
It is a Singer 401a and it is a great machine.
