I sure hope slow and steady finishes the race... that's the pace I have been going on for the last week. Sometimes when you are working on multiple projects simultaneously you feel like you are getting nothing done.
I have been working on my Zig Zag Quilt for the Old Red Barn Quilt Along. I cut 256 - 5 inch squares that I have been marking, matching, cutting & ironing for the HST units. The photo above shows my bottom row laid out, other than my table is not as wide as the quilt will be.
I have been using a new marking pencil and it is working really well. Sorry the photo is a tad blurry... it is labeled as Ultimate Marking Pencil for Quilters and Crafters, I bought at my LQS for about $3. So far the process seems to be going well, though slower that I'd like.
Do you have any favorite marking tools or tricks for HST? If you'd like to share, leave a comment and it would be fun for all of us to read them!
So here is peak at a quilt back that is almost done, I just have to piece (& match) the top section to sew on above the blocks... this is the bottom. Sometimes, I wish I didn't have such tedious ideas!
Don't forget to leave a comment regarding your favorite marking tools & HST tips... and if you haven't entered my honey bun giveaway click here, the contest is open until Wednesday night!
