If by chance you get that feeling that you've seen it all before, you might just be right. I've been head down over the sewing machine stitching away at another It's a Hoot Quilt, although this time a little smaller than the first (see here).
This quilt is a custom order for a baby yet to be born; and will definitely be big enough to last well into early childhood and beyond.
Goodness, it's been such a productive few days! The quilt top and quilt back were made yesterday (and late into the evening - or was it early morning?). With an early start today, I marked quilting lines with a ruler and a Hera Marker:
Can you see the cross-hatch (diagonal) marked quilting lines - pictured above? I mark lines - if needed - during the basting process: once the edges of the quilt are securely pin basted, but before the remaining basting pins are in place. These lines are only just visible and remain there long enough for me to finish quilting. Trust me, it is the no mess, no fuss way to mark quilting lines.
I completed the basting and ...
... started the quilting. These fabrics are just gorgeous to work with, and I am a little sorry to see my stash of this fabric collection dwindle. But I am happy with the knowledge that this quilt will be used often and much loved.
