When I’m working on a quilt, I keep the appropriate color Fabrico Markers in the cup I have stuck to my Fusion, and when the bad quilting fairy takes over control and screws it up, I have the marker right there.
Actually, after that, the delayed light dawned. I stabilized the rest of the quilt as I did all the stitch in the ditch with monofilament thread, which I would have done in the first place, if I had been thinking.
Here’s a photo of the help I got with squaring up and trimming that quilt.
I always like to see the pattern that emerges on the back of the quilt.
And what about that snow!! We were closed last Saturday and Sunday with 36″ of snow. This is the scene from my studio window midway through Saturday. (I used to call it my “sewing room” but I read somewhere that it’s more important if it’s a “studio.”)
A few minutes later, several birds came to the feeder and our youngest (cat, that is) pounced on the window, startled them, and the tower of snow fell off. It’s too bad, because it would have been fun to see it by the end of the day. Anyway, if you happen to be snowed in, there’s no better excuse to sew or stitch! It’s like kids getting a snow day off school. Of course if you have kids snowed in with you, you might not get as much sewing and stitching done…
