A friend of mine asked me to machine quilt a project for her. She wanted to put it in her guild quilt show but wasn't going to have time to finish it.
So guess who agreed to help get it done?

My friend marked the design she wanted with a water soluble blue marker (on light fabrics) and some 1/4" tape (on dark fabrics). The tape was a pain to deal with. I had to clip out parts of it in order to stitch continuous lines, and it kept getting stuck to the walking foot.

I much preferred quilting with the free motion foot and following the blue lines.
Look at how dirty my Machinger gloves are, just from dye transfer and dirt on the fabrics. I do love the increased grip that these gloves give when machine quilting.
This is the quilted project. It is the same pattern as my train quilt (click here and scroll down to see it). These quilts look so different you would never know they are made from the same pattern!
Now my friend can put the binding on and the quilt will be finished in time for the Grand Quilt Guild show in Fergus on June 8 and 9.
