I have cut my primary fabric and backing for the Crayon Tint embroidery class, now I am getting ready to trace the pattern onto the fabric.
Instead of pinning the pattern to the fabric I am using painters tape to hold the pattern in place which I think should work, we used this method for the smaller patterns in class.
The pattern shows through quite nicely and I can see it so I shouldn't have any trouble tracing it, I will be using my little Crayola light box I bought last year for another project.
My piece is new traced and ready for crayon tinting, though I may make another and leave off the Merry, Jingle and Snow so it would just read Make a pot of tea Snuggle in a warm quilt and Stitch the winter away!
I am looking forward to Tuesday's class, another Crab-Apple Hill pattern came in the mail yesterday.
It's a cute heart pillow made in the crazy quilt style which I love so I will be anxious to start this one soon, I have a pretty rose print fabric I think may work for the pillow.
I am nearly finished reading A Single Thread by Marie Bostwick and starting Mary Daheim's The Alpine Quilt.
