April Free Motion Quilting Challenge

 
This month's Challenge/Tutorial on Insights from SewCalGal is by Don Linn, Mr. Quilt. In his tutorial he showed this really cool way of transferring stitch designs using tulle.

I am late on this, this month, and feeling a bit uninspired. But I watched the tutorial and gave it a shot.

And it was quite easy.

And the results were FABULOUS!

I do not mark much prior to quilting, usually I will mark a boundary or a curve. But this technique opens a lot of ideas for me and I am glad to have done it!

I'm the same way, usually just mark general shapes so I don't get too far out of bounds. This technique was so easy that I'll definitely use it again!
