That UFO. I’ve finished the straight line quilting in the pieced blocks, and have moved on to the curved quilting.

This is a quilt for my son and his lovely wife, I shared about here. It’s all marked for the curved quilting.

I cut a three inch circle from card stock  and grabbed a Sewline white ceramic lead marking pencil. Then traced around the circle to mark the curves within the brown squares.  I can continuous line quilt through the brown squares from one side of the quilt to the other. After the quilting is completed in the brown squares, there are just 2 borders to quilt. Phew! The end is in sight!

Another project all marked and ready to go is October’s block 3 of Happy Little Things BOM. I’m embroidering the center of each block.

Next step, select the embroidery floss for this month.

Here’s September’s block 2 all completed.

Happy Little Things do make me happy!

    Holy moly! That is just brilliant, and I’m so glad you shared how you mark/continuous line stitch from edge to edge. Just the kind of thing I LOVE to do, and am always looking for new ideas. Your Happy Little Things are SO cute. Diann (another linker) is doing those as well. I love the colors and how your background fabrics really pull the colors out in your stitching. Yay for those check marks from last week. Can’t wait to see your son’s quilt all complete, and thanks for linking up. ~smile~ Roseanne

    Your Happy Little Things block is so pretty – I’m wishing I had joined in on that one. Congratulations on making progress on your son’s quilt! Before long you’ll have it finished.
