This past week I drove down to visit my mother and sister for a few days. It was lovely to sit with my mother at her memory care center and stitch. My mother was a sewist and quilter, so I think she enjoyed just being with me while I hand-quilted. I got a lot done on the Triangles quilt for my son.
This quilt has half square triangles that I am quilting squares into. Most of the squares have a light triangle and a dark triangle. I am quilting a 1/4 inch inside the square. I tried to eyeball it. I must be cross-eyed (LOL) because that did not work well. Then, I remembered the Hera marker and a quarter inch ruler I had recently purchased. Oh, my! That worked like a charm and nothing to wash out either.
I am marking a few squares at a time. I used the quarter inch marking on the inside of the seams and then, used the width of the ruler to mark lines for the center square. Those marking lines stay in very well.
You can see those Hera marker creases in the photo above. FYI: My hubby wanted to know how I managed to bend so many pins. Hee! Hee!
