Another look at the comparison between the solid version and scrappy version…

modern quilt block of the month in tula pink fabricI used the block 4 color diagram to plan my scrappy block piecing and my quilting just like in previous posts.

I quilted this block on my domestic machine similar to the orange version.  I started by layering (see quilt as you go part 1) and basting my block.  After I stitched in the ditch, I marked some guide lines to follow on my center block…

And I marked some curved lines on the four ‘D’ blocks with this clover white marking pen – and quilted them with my walking foot.  After I finished working with my walking foot I switched feet and did some free motion circles and swirls.

Don’t be afraid to use these water erasable markers for marking some guide lines… just test them first but I’ve never had a problem… When my block is done ~ I just spray the marks with water, and blot any excess water with a paper towel as I go and let dry.

quilt as you go I actually like this step because it looks all messy and marked up before you spray it and then the lines disappear and you get to really see your stitches… the big reveal ~ so fun!
