Tools for center quilting: Leather roller foot #55, Roxannes Quilter's Choice pencil and medium Kurumi.
I traced around the Kurumi with a white pencil and stitched over the line with the roller foot. Then it was on to the new adventure: Big Stitching.
Tools for Big Stitching: Hera marker ( I started with Roxanne's Quilter's Choice silver Pencil but I switched after I flummoxed my first markings), number 7 embroidery needle, needle puller on my thumb, snippers, Fons and Porter's pin cushion, leather thimble for my underneath finger, hoop and 12 wt. grey Sew Sassy.
When I get to the applique pieces I rock my needle so that it does not pierce the applique but still catches the fabric and batting from the backside.
I basted the top edged of the quilt using Vanish Lite so that I could tell where the edge of the back is from the front side. My hope is that I can line up my binding on that line and use it for a guide for my big stitch.
The grey Sew Sassy does not stand out as much as I thought it would. The project directions calls for stitching around all the applique before doing the curved stitching...but that was assuming you fused the appliqued, I needle turned mine so I think I will not do that. I may add some embroidery. Who knows? Hmmmm...That's a decision for later.
