Lantern Quilt for class and Quilt Marking

This is the quilt I will be teaching at Morning Out starting on February 23rd.

Here's a little how-to on QUILT MARKING.

Find something that fits the space.

It is not necessary to use up a whole washout marker on each quilt. A few well placed dots will give you a target to aim for. The pennies you save can go in your Make a Martini jar.

If you plan beforehand you can usually figure out some way to make the design continuous. This will make your quilting go much faster and you can enjoy your martini sooner. A little spritz with PLAIN water makes the blue marks disappear. Do not confuse your martini with water. Bad for you AND the quilt.
The outer border was quilted using circle templates. With definitely (!) no martini assistance.
