I used a blue water soluble marking pen to trace onto the fabric as Mr. Linn directed in his lesson. I really hate these pens! LOL It always takes me several wettings to get the marks to stay gone. I've posted photos of my FMQing showing my quilting over the marks and after the marks have been removed. All quilting uses a variegated brown to cream quilting thread.
Here is the motif from Mr. Linn
Here's the motif from Dover. I thought this would be fairly easy...just scallops. Wasn't as easy as I thought as you can see once the marks were removed!
Believe it or not, the one that I thought would be the hardest, turned out to be the easiest for me. Who knew?????
These were fun and interesting to do. Opens up a whole new world of quilt motif ideas! I stayed on the lines pretty well, and was surprised that I could keep a line straight and even back track over it very well. Much more practiced needed, but I'm gaining so much confidence and experience. And having fun....that's the important thing!!
Keep on stitchin'!!
