outlining designs.
Select 37.
Place monofilament (clear invisible) thread in the needle
and 60 weight cotton thread on the bobbin (color
matches quilt back).
Use a washable fabric marker to draw design lines on
quilt top. Place batting (wadding) between quilt top and
backing fabric. Sew over design lines.

quilts for decoration.
