Last design for the small quilt.


While hoping very much for a school day tomorrow -  in my spare time  that dratted pencil flew into my hand again :)
Now I need to sew over the design with only  the sewing needle ...no thread..and then use the white pounce pad to put it on the quilt..tomorrow! 
Thought as it was a practice quilt - I would try for something that hopefully looks a bit ..Victorian ? ...the spaces filled with the feathers.

I wondered if it was possible to stitch through a drawn design and then use the pounce pad. What size needle do you use? I have problems getting markings on dark fabric with any of the pens or chalk pencils I have tried.

Beautiful feathers. I'm going to have to try your method of sewing then pouncing. What is used in your pouncer? I imagine white chalk for darker fabrics but what do you use for white fabrics?

So sorry Andrea is having such a bad time with her migraines though. Poor lass. I hope they will ease up soon and the docs find out what is causing them.... hugs Ellyx
