Yesterday, January 1, 2016, was the Snowflake Serenade Mystery Quilting Event on the Longarm Classroom website. Now that the quilting has been revealed to the class members, I can reveal the quilting to you!
This is the quilt we started with ( I love quilts with lots of “open” spaces!)

During the course of the class, marked registration lines – a LOT of them – on the quilt top. When I do marking like this, on my own quilts or quilts that I can wash with warm water and detergent after quilting, I use fine point, Crayola Washable Markers.
This photo shows the completed quilt with the black, orange and green Crayola Washable Marker markings on it.
Note: The background fabric of this quilt is a white solid cotton fabric. In the photos below it looks like a light blue fabric.
Here is a close up of the quilting and the markers. I sprayed some water onto the markings to show that the marker may “melt” but it doesn’t disappear until the quilt is washed.
I know, it looks like a royal mess! But don’t worry, the marker WILL come out!
Here is the quilt, trimmed, bound and washed. What a difference!
ALL the marker is GONE!!! Here are some more photos of the completed (and washed) class project.
FYI – ALL the quilting is done FREE HAND! A ruler was used to mark the registration lines, but all the lines of the quilting are free hand. Even the snowflake quilting design is done free hand!
And here is a view of part of the back of the quilt. You can REALLY see the quilting.
