I'm quilting my I-Spy with straight-line utility quilting. I'm stitching either side of the seam lines in the sashing and want to extend that through the orange border. To mark the stitching lines I used the Hera Marker by Clover. The light crease in the fabric is enough to stitch with and it doesn't leave any permanent mark.
In addition to safety pins, I use these long straight pins to secure the line of stitching. These pins are long enough to use for both stitching lines. I hope to have more time in the next fews days to work on it.
My goal to finish is before the 11th when I want to pass the quilt on. It's totally achievable providing no storms, floods, fires, earthquakes, car explosions, leaking dishwashers, agitated washing machines and (insert your disaster of choice).
