If you give a mouse a cookie….

….he’s going to want a glass of milk….. That’s how the children’s book goes. The moral is that one thing leads to another. That’s exactly how this project got started!

After I basted a small quilt on the longarm, I had leftover backing. So I decided to use it to practice some machine quilting.

I pulled out a piece of muslin and pressed it to find the center.

Then I thought this would be a good time to work with some of my long arm rulers.

I started marking some things and decided I should make a small whole cloth quilt.

I’m marking way more than I should, but I’m also designing as I go.

So much for a quick practice.

Have a great day!

    Ha Ha–sounds so familiar. The design is lovely. I have only put curved cross-hatching on two small quilts. It is so pretty, but kind of time consuming.

    Hi Katy,
    Ooh-la-la! Pretty design and fun looking rulers. I love that book by the way, and the other ones by that author. ~smile~ Roseanne
