More pink

Well, ok more not pink but you know what I mean. I was asked about the letters today. This quilt was designed on computer using a large nmber of different fonts. I then printed the design full size and traced it onto wash away stabiliser which is mounted on top of the quilt sandwich. There is no way I could quilt this many letters without marking. In fact I am willing to bet I would spell it wrong without the markings.

The black quilting is freehand and unmarked. It's mostly unplanned to be honest I really am playing on this quilt. I guess that it can go to other shows. I had been thinking of it as a one show almost throwawy quilt, so maybe it will visit a show near you. I will certainly check the size requirements of the World Quilt show before I trim and bind it.

Having been teaching today I didn't have much time to quilt. I did manage to get 2 hours in though which means I am now nearly halfway. As I've just finished dinner I might even get another couple of hours in before bed.

I'll post the pictures of my summer school kit tomorrow ladies.

I would be interested to see how you transition from one filler to another.

There are several transitions shown in the photos so you might be able to see if you click on the images to enlarge them. I will try and get some close ups of just that tomorrow. Today I am teaching all day again.
