Twisted Sister – Quilting

Since there’s a good bit more room under my Janome’s arm, I tried some “free-motion” quilting on this one. It wasn’t really free – I just guided along curved lines using a straight stitch. I’m not brave enough to go completely free.

The blocks were 6″ so I searched the kitchen for a plate or cup or something to trace. Turns out, a pot lid was the only thing that worked.

I did the first row in chalk, but it rubs off so fast! Good for crayon rolls when I want the line gone quickly. Not so good on quilting. I bought a wash-out pen and it worked well. You know, when I could actually see the quilt I was writing on.

I think it came out well! And it really wasn’t that hard.
