Getting ready for Brigitte.

This week I will be returning to my class with Brigitte Giblin. Always inspiring, I am keen to see what she has been working on lately.  I had hoped to have my project from the last class finished, but....you know how it is! I have the top together but just need to work on the central applique & the paper pieced stars around the border. I "fiddled" with Brigitte's original concept & have worked with 1930's fabrics, and I am quite pleased with how it has developed. I hope Brigitte likes it!
 The blocks for the first three stitcheries with the Stitchalong group are assembled, traced & stitching commenced. My fabrics are a bit bright but I hope they will add some festive fun.

That quilt is SO pretty! I love it. I have really wanted to do some stitcheries this year. I have some designs and perle cottons but I stalled with marking. What do you use to mark your fabric?
