I'm enjoying documenting all of my Spirograph-like motifs on my quilt. In many of these photos it appears that the stitching doesn't show well. Trust me, they do show up. The thread is very shiny but the camera is flattening it out.
Last week Carolyn asked what I'm using to mark the circles. I use a mechanical chalk pencil like this one. Most of the chalk marks come off with the stitching but the rest will wash out easily.
Let's get on with today's marbles:
This one is hard to explain. I marked 15 points on the outside and 15 points on a small center circle. Using the circle ruler I connected and outer point to the corresponding point on the center circle and the stitched to the next point over on the outer circle. At the end I connected the center points with a small circle. I'm not totally thrilled with the outcome but I"m treating this quilt as a sampler so this design stays with all of the rest.
I'm Vicki Welsh and I've been making things as long as I can remember. I used to be a garment maker but transitioned to quilts about 20 years ago. Currently I'm into fabric dyeing, quilting, Zentangle, fabric postcards, fused glass and mosaic. I document my adventures here.
