August 20, 2011 in Quilting
Today, I finally finished marking the quilting on the entire Gator Quilt. I ended up using a combination of two marking tools.
- Bohin chalk pencil for the orange and blue sections
- Quilter’s Silver Marking Pencil for the white areas
I marked the quilt before I sandwiched it because I wanted to quilt it in the “Gators” and “University of Florida” logos. So I used a light box to help with the marking.
The marking wasn’t difficult, it just took a while. I have decided that marking the quilting is my LEAST favorite part of the process. And it was making my neck hurt and gave me headaches looking down and tracing.
But I will soon be at my FAVORITE part – the machine quilting!
Here are some more pics – hopefully you can see the marking. I am off to go sandwich it.
