I am so happy! The technique for transferring a quilting pattern to the quilt block worked for me. I have a quilt that I made with these blocks and I finally got it put together. I received the quilting pattern from the quilt shop where I took the class, and was wondering how I was going to be able to transfer it to the quilt. Thanks for the tutorial, Don! It worked like a charm and I now feel much better about doing the quilting.
It's kind of hard to see the pattern on this block, so I took a picture of the back.
The pattern is quite easy because you don't have to backtrack at all and can quilt the complete block without stopping - that is if you don't make any mistakes.
Another big bonus for me, was that with my new Janome 6600 sewing machine, I was able to use two different colors of thread, light on the bottom and brown on the top. I wanted to test this out because the fabric that I have for the backing of the quilt is light and most of the quilt top is dark. With my old machine, I was never able to get the tension good enough to do it without it showing through. Yea!!!
