It is always so nice when needle, thread, and quilting come together without skips, breakage of thread, or breakage of needle while free motion quilting. Makes all the repositioning I have to do with my small-harped sewing machine the only bothersome bit. But first there was some marking. Now, I am mostly a "no-mark" type of quilter, however, when necessary I get it done with simple tools I have around the house :)
An oval baking dish and a spool in this case--the spokes in the spool helped me line up the positioning with the point of the triangle while I traced around it. I changed the design by making the circle on top of the arc instead of within, to fill up the tip of the triangle sections, and I think it looks better than my original sketch.
I'd say I'm consistently inconsistent in the way I do my quilting. This time I'm switching back and forth between marking the caramel triangles and stitching them with caramel thread, and the stippling in the cream sections with matching thread.
