Colleen's Cat Quilt

So after I have finished Anna's Cat Quilt, I received Colleen's Cat Quilt...just to add something. She had already completed the quilt, binding, ditch work and straight line quilting all done. I just added the scroll featherly corners. I love it! Hope Colleen loves it too!

 
I did these corners completely free-motion on my little Bernina Activa 210.








 
 

Happy Quilting!

  1. *Love* those corners! OK, fmq on your Bernina - do you mark first? If so, what do you prefer to use?

  2. LynCC, thanks for visiting and the nice comments!

    Yes and no, if it is something like this project where I want the corners to mostly look the same, then I mark. I draw each design out with a blue water soluble fabric marker pen. It's effective and cheap! This particular design I have drawn each corner out freehand, ie no template. If it requires absolute precision, then I would make a cardboard template of the design and then draw onto the quilt. To remove the marks, make up a mix of 1 tbs bicarb soda and 1 1/2 cup ice water. It neutralizes the acid in the pen to keep it from resurfacing once dry. For dark fabrics I use the Clover white fabric marking pen, it removes with heat.

    Hope that helps.
