Choosing a Quilting Design

Hubby has taken another vacation day today. It's cold outside but should warm up to 16c. I have dandelions in the front garden that need to be extricated. Work first, though. Here is one method of auditioning quilting designs. I use the yellow cello wrap for gift baskets and design on it with a Sharpie marker. This is an excellent way to figure out the quilting path, ie the movement of the quilting machine. This is a customer quilt I was very excited to see. I have the same quilt in a state of UFO (unfinished object) from a class I took with Shirley Stutz, author of Easy Elegant Lone Star Quilts.
