Miracle Chalk on Sunburst Quilt

June 04, 2014

Hello Everyone Today I have been having a lovely day quilting my new Sunburst Quilt. I made this small quilt over a month ago and I am only getting around to starting the quilting. This is working out to be a really fun quilt to quilt. To mark my design from a quilting stencil I have used Miracle Chalk with the powder puff thingy. It seems to work wonderfully, you just place your stencil on the quilt and then swipe the duster filled with chalk to get a solid marked line.

Friday I am off to Cottage Flair in Rotorua to teach a class on my Vintage Crosses quilt. Last months class was filled with such lovely people, I loved my time with Jill and the ladies in this gorgeous shop filled with goodies. Here's a picture of the lovely ladies in my last class.

I would love to know your thoughts. Happy Stitching Sharon
