Today was Craft Day at our little church. It’s a really nice time where the ladies can all gather together for food and fellowship. We each bring whatever craft we like and sit and work and chat. Ahhh…relax!
I grabbed the Sapphire Star quilt I’ve been hand quilting. It’s been sitting for several months and I really need to start working on it more regularly.
Anyway, I got to church with the quilt, my needles and thread, and my thimble and peacefully began quilting. I’m just doing a simple running stitch 1/4″ away from the seams. Nothing fancy. As I worked near the edges I needed to quilt 1/2″ from the raw edges so I could leave space for the binding. But, I didn’t bring any marking pens or pencils with me. After a brief look around the room, I decided to use a simple plastic spoon and a borrowed ruler to mark my quilting lines.
