I machine quilted this with my walking foot. I quilt it on the diagonal weaving back and forth doing the leaf shapes or figure 8s. After quilting all the way around in all directions, the circle pattern is created. I hope this answers the questions.
I used my pounce marker, which I had sort of forgotten about and it worked great for this overall teacup, or pumpkin seed stencil. They have a new powder now that comes off with a steam iron. I had to wash mine, but that's okay.
I used this patriotic fabric for the backing.
The painters are here again this week to paint the bathrooms and bedrooms. I had to practically move out of my sewing room, but it will be worth it.
I found the PERFECT neutral for the sewing room; Benjamin Moore's Muslin. How could I resist?
Hope you have a great week.
