Screened Porch Quilting on Jim's Woobie

Another gorgeous day in the Piedmont Triad, so I was out on my screened porch quilting on Jim's woobie quilt.

The stippling design shows better on the back side.  I'm loving the 80/20 batt and the soft backing fabric.  They quilt like a dream.

It's coming along beautifully! How do you transfer the stippling design to the fabric...with a pounce? before you put it in the hoop? and then do you move your hand to follow those curves, or do you turn the hoop? I have tried quilting in a stationary frame and it's really hard quilting away from myself!

Hi Cat,
You've been busy catching up on your blog reading today, haven't you? I use one of those little rolling chalk wheels and just mark one stencil at a time before I put it in the hoop. I turn the hoop, because I have the same problem with quilting in the wrong direction. I try not to drag my hand over the chalk, but sometimes that's not easy. It's slow, but it works.
Warm regards,
