I'm a quilting

This is what I've been doing for the past two days...quilting Rose's Quilt.
I stitched-in-the-ditch around each block. Next I'm stitching diagonal lines through every other block. This is how I'm doing those...
I use painter's tape to mark the quilting line. I pin it because otherwise I find the tape tends to shift when I'm shoving gently running the quilt through my machine. On darker fabrics, I like to use my chalk pencil, but since it's white I can't really use it on this quilt. I'm doing it now so that I can have it completed by Thanksgiving and I can deliver it personally. Not to be opened until Christmas, of course!

Be back soon!

  1. I just love the fabrics! I had to take my machine yesterday to have it checked out and serviced :(

  2. Using the tape is a great idea! Thanks! I keep some handy near my machines, because I use it to mark a seam allowance width on my machine if I am using a width that is not already on there.


  3. Oh this is a pretty quilt too! Good for you for thinking ahead! Save on postage (or gas)! lol

  4. Hi Jen, I'm stopping by after being MIA for a while. I've started my first quilt and will be blogging about it soon. My neighbor is a quilter and has helped me SO MUCH. I want to thank you for pushing me to get started. I took your shopping list with me to get my supplies :) Your baby quilt is beautiful.

  5. I blogged about my quilt making today and mentioned you :)
