I have been playing around with how to get koi onto my Koi Pond quilt. I've tried machine embroidery twice, both not as successful as I want (see here and here). So I decided to FMQ the fish. But first I had to mark the fish on the Navy fabric. So I decided to use Don Linn tutorial from Sew Cal Gal last April, which I had used before, but only on light fabric.
|Matte Black Tulle!!! You only need enough tulle to fit into your hoop, but I got two yards to have it on hand.|
|I was a little amazed at how well it shows up on the dark fabric. Now just take the chalk pencil and trace in onto your fabric. The pencil will mark right through the tulle.|
|Voila' ! Perfectly marked fabric ready to stitch (okay, I have to make a quilt sandwich first.)|
Today I'm linking up with A Quilt Story for Fabric Tuesday and Free Motion by the River for Linky Tuesday.
