First of all - scale: kept loosely to a scale of a little bit less than 1/2 inch; that worked for most designs, but I discovered that some designs worked better at a 1/4 inch for me, i.e sharp stippling
A look at the individual designs:
Loopy Lines design:
Not a problem but a bit tricky to fit into some areas depending on which direction you came from.
Bit nervous about this one as I had read in some other posts that people had issues with that. I did two areas of this, one in a loop section and one larger area displayed above. As it turned out, I did two different scales. The above one is quilted at about 1/4 inch and that suited me somewhat much better. Once I got into the rhythm of this it just flowed and the effect is quite pretty. I think I prefer the design at this scale.
Here is the end result.

Thank you, Leah, from Leah Day's Quilt Along Wednesday for this great project. Learned heaps from it and (bonus) this was just the right idea for this fabric.
Questions I had from last Quilt Along (which I posted too late):
- how far do you quilt to the edge of the quilt?
- does anybody have any tips on how to remove blue chalk marks (the variety that is used for dressmaking? The packet says to use a damp cloth which I tried and it does not just dissolve, so I am wondering if it is going to come out at all.
- I have a Pfaff machine and have a drop-in bobbin case - would you use the Magic Bobbin washers with that?
Until next time
