I've been at the long arm for the last couple of days working on Emilie Elizabeth. This quilt was telling me she wanted to looked old fashioned.....and she is.
I marked the quilt first using a Frixion pen. It is okay to use them on light fabric, but don't use them for marking dark fabric. When you press it to remove the marks, they disappear on light fabric, but they will leave a white line on dark fabrics. I press right on the long arm with my applique iron to remove the lines as soon as they are quilted. I don't let the marking sit there for days. I have also removed the lines using a blow dryer.
I didn't realize how many different elements were going on in this quilt until I started quilting.
It is always so hard to get a picture. I have to wait for the afternoon sun to shine in the window to get a halfway decent picture.
The corner blocks.
Borders and little inset border.
No post would be complete without a picture of Mazey. This is our granddaughter Kinsey giving Mazey some loving. The twins want to come over everyday......and it's not to see their Grammy and Poppy! They play with Mazey until she collapses with exhaustion. I think I need to hire them to tire her out every evening so she will sleep through the night. Last night was successful, Mazey slept the whole night without nature calling!
