Marking a quilt

I had this lovely embroidered quilt to work on. I wanted something in the narrow-ish green border at the outer edge.

I needed to mark some registration lines, so I pulled out my
1 1/2" lined stencil and my chalk pounce pad.

Once the chalk lines were in place it was simply a matter of quilting the continuous line design of "hearts & L's". This is all done AFTER I have finished stitching in the ditch on the border. No s.i.d. makes for a drunk looking border.

The chalk line was the centre of the hearts and the L's went in between each chalk line.

Here is a wee shot of the finished quilt.
