Making Samples

I often audition quilting patterns. I like to see what a motif will look like before I stitch it on my quilt. Since marking isn't my thing, I prefer to use Golden Threads Quilting Paper. It tears away cleanly and easily without pulling out my stitches.The trick is to ALWAYS use a permanent marker. The marker assures that the mark will stay with the paper.
After I draw my design on the paper, I pin it to the fabric sandwich.
After stitching, before I removed the paper.
The finished motif, it's perfect!
