|Checking the spacing|
Then, I realized that I could extend the markings from the block into the border and my design would fit perfectly! That plan worked. I need to remember that tip because no math was involved! Because I needed a chalked line to start, I didn't use the ruler.
Perhaps, when I get to adding the additional lines, the rulers will be just the tool I need to finish the design! My free motion quilting on a line is improving!
|Auditioning this design|
Remember, I'm working to keep the quilting density even as I work on this project. At the end of the process, I will evaluate whether or not I have less distortion working in this manner.
It's difficult to see in the photo that I used a blue variegated thread in the purple border. I liked the effect! See how much the chalk disappears after stitching?
Next up, is designing that wide outer border. Hmmm. . .I've been doodling; but, I haven't penciled a design that I want to use yet. You will have to check back on Sunday!
