I'm making some bracket shapes with a water soluble marker (Clover brand). I sketched in the general shape. Quilting on the line would be tedious, so the mark is only there to indicate where I start, make a point and stop.
Simple DIY Guide
Because there are so many lines and seams with the log cabin block, it was easy to confuse which strips to quilt. A paper frame allowed me to focus on the square to mark.
Wish I had known...
The first act in my plan of attack was to stitch in the ditch around each block. Using cream thread looked good in some places and not so much in others. Where two brown edges meet, it , well, looks like crap. I checked with Sammi Seam Ripper - could he help me out? But, he was busy with a yoga class. Just as well. I'll do better next time.
Do you have any tips to share?
