Quilting on a Marked Line on the Grace Qnique

Gasp! I'm coming up for air after working on my book all day. I've been busy creating diagrams to illustrate binding techniques for the last chapter in the book and honestly it's making me crazy! Give me a video camera and let me make a video on it any day.

Speaking of videos, I did have a fun adventure on the Grace Qnique longarm this week. I pulled out the IKEA pear table runner and began quilting inside the pear shapes. The design in this area was so busy I just quilted on the marked lines and shot a video to share how it worked:

On this table runner, that was one crazy print inside that pear! I just picked a line to get started and began quilting through the area. The nice thing is the lines were 1/8-inch wide so I could quilt pretty sloppy and it still looked great.

Next week I'll plan to fill one of the empty pear shapes with feathers so be looking forward to that new video next Sunday. Do you like those background designs? Click Here to find a video on how I quilted them using Collage Style Quilting.

But I admit I'm getting a bit bored with those designs. If you have suggestions for more designs in this project let me know!

Let's go quilt,
