Marking for Hand Quilting
When I quilted my first Seven Sisters quilt I used a Hera marker and it took me so long to finish the quilting. I could only mark a few baptist fans at a time because the marks would disappear after I manhandled my quilt. It is not very convenient to stop quilting, find a spot where I could spread the quilt out to mark and then get back to quilting. Hopefully, using the Frixion pens will make it quicker for me to finish this quilt. Of course, there is quite a time investment initially to mark all of the fans but I think it will work out much better for me.
Even though I am not actually quilting yet, I am prepping for a whole lot of it and I am linking up to Kathy's Quilts -Slow Sunday Stitching.
