  1. Thanks for the hera marker info. I will make sure I don't mark my entire quilt at once!! Also, I love the Glimmer pattern. I fell prey to all the mini keychain templates on nancy's notions. Yes I have all 14 of them, yikes! But there's no corresponding patterns out that I know of so now I don't know what to use them on. But they look cute sitting in their own little private basket, haha!!! I was hoping to just dash a mini quilt together out of some JR but discovered "throwing together" your own pattern is much harder than I thought.

    I love my Hera marker. The lines fade a little as you handle the fabric, so for hand quilting you can't mark the whole quilt ahead, just what you're working on. It just dents the fibers, nothing permanent, it's just like raking your thumbnail across the fabric. You could probably use something like the end of a Purple Thang to make swirls, the Hera you can make curves with but since it's a curved edge it doesn't lend itself to drawing motions.

    Hope that helps!

    The mini is Glimmer by Jaybird. I haven't gotten past laying out my mini charms, I think the print is called Jingle. I've made one with the Gardenvale print. Her patterns call for yardage, but I got two diamonds out of each 2.5" square and had a few charms left over. The most the me consuming thing was arranging my fabric, because once you sew the diamonds together in sections you sew the wedges together and it's done. I picked the smallest number of matching prints for the center because that only takes 6 charms, then the rest fell into place easily and gave me a coordinated but scrappy look. I'll post pics on Instagram as I go, @stitchwishes.

  4. Thanks! What are cherry chips? Never seen them. Are they with choc chips at the store? I have only seen choc, butterscotch, and mint choc ones.
