Your quilt is awesome, the quilting is stunning, lots of patience to get all the quilting done. So glad that you shared it with us.

Thank you. It did take patience and lots of time, but it was a great learning experience.
Dena_LivinH20 asked:
Beautiful, just beautiful! Thanks taking and sharing detail shots of the quilting! What did you use to mark your stencils on the white background. Also, did you use Bottom for both top and bottom thread?
nmcclel answered:
Thank you. I used a Pilot Frixion pen that irons off. Yes, I did use Bottom Line thread for top and bottom threads. I was very pleased with the results.
