    This was a request from my DH's aunt and a practice run for making a quilt of the Old Man on the Mountain with Mirror Lake. For once at least I dipped my toes in the water before diving into the deep end lol.

    Its nothing spectacular yet... 2 dolphins are going to be pieced and appliqued on but here's a preview, I had to do patterns because it required 2 seams and I wanted waves to be continuous.

    You can still kind of see the seams if you look for the jumps in the pattern of the fabric but otherwise they just flow along.

    Just tried it with 2 bic pens and winner winner chicken dinner!!!! A perfect 1/4" thank you so so much just made this pattern tracing so much easier! Its nice to be able to free hand draw something but was driving me crazy trying to then add the seam allowances. Now hopefully this will lead to far more quilts 😁, cuz after making 21 quilts predominantly out of nothing but scraps... it barely looks like I touched them lol. And I can only do so many squares and hsts put together.

    I think I read something about taping two pencils together... gives a 1/4 inch? Try it and measure the distance between the two lines.

    found this so far. I am sure there must be pens out there, maybe for artists or architects.
