So, I finally was able to work on a bit of quilting. However, things did not go as planned. I never like my quilting. I wanted something very specific for my Dog Bone Dresser scarf, mainly Dog Bones, duh. So, I decided to use that sticky saran wrap “Glad Press and Seal”. There were good things and bad things about it. So, I don’t exactly hate the quilting. Dog bones actually look like dog bones. However, now that I am done with the quilting, I am pretty sure I have spent more time picking out that “Press and Seal” wrap than I actually spend quilting the entire piece. The other part was that while doing the quilting, I found that the “press and Seal was not easy to re-position. Once you start quilting and compress your quilt sandwich, I found that the “Press and Seal: needed adjusted and it was not possible.
I put the entire design on, including sqiggely lines. I found it difficult to follow. Most of the time I did my own squigglies until I got to the dog bone. Then I follow the pattern. I have three other pieces to make for our bedroom. I think I will make a dog bone template and use a Frixion Pen. I don’t need a template for squiggely lines. That I have under control. The hands are getting better, so hopefully I can get back into my routine and be less cranky. If anyone has had luck using “cling Wrap”, I would love for someone to tell me why it was so difficult and if there is an easy way to remove all that plastic. I am curious how everyone else marks their quilts now that I becoming more adventurous with my quilting.
