After the piecing was complete, I basted it together with a one piece back and some warm and natural batting. I've since started hand quilting. I wanted a simple motif that would accent the prints in the fabrics. So, I chose a leaf shape. Hopefully you can see some of the quilting in the pic (I have yet to figure out how to make the pics "click to enlarge").
I'm having some difficulty with marking the shape before stitching. After reading the directions on some of these marking pens, I was afraid most of them would not wash out and the quilt would look icky when done. Managed to narrow my choices down to a taylor's chalk pencil and a quilter's soap stone pencil. So far, I'm finding it very difficult to see the soap stone whether it's a dark fabric or not. Seems kinda hard. Haven't tried chalk yet... what do you use to mark your quilting templates?
After getting this far with this 21" square quilt... I can say that I really do enjoy the piecing part of making quilts... I'm just undecided about the quilting part... maybe next time I will try machine quilting... though I've never used that darning attachment... hold onto your socks folks... this could get ugly... LOL! ;-)
Have a great day!
