    Oh I love your elephant! The splotches are perfect!! Will he go on a background fabric or pieced quilt? Your blue and gray is gorgeous, too. I have never been able to get my pounce thing to work. I sat here and pounced for what seemed like a half an hour one day, trying to load it with chalk. It went back in my drawer. I’m glad yours worked so well! Happy Quilting!!

      Hi Ramona! I’ve been working on Ellie this weekend and just finished putting on the two borders. The quilt top is finished! I watched a video on YouTube about the Pounce pad – to drag it over the stencil in spite of its name. You would think you would pat it up and down but the dragging pulls out the chalk. Maybe a video would help you? I hope so because it was really quick to mark the stencil. ~smile~ Roseanne

    Hi There! You got so much accomplished! Congratulations! Your elephant looks so precious! Thank you for sharing!

    • Roseanne says:

      Hi Patricia – thank you! I’ve got him clipped all around (since I can’t press him to the background yet). I’m going to post a picture on our FB page just to tease my niece. ~smile~

    Love Grunge! How did the stitching on the Pounce marked lines go? Did they stay on to see clearly?

    • Roseanne says:

      Hi Sharon! For some reason your comment went into spam. Geez – I apologize for not replying earlier. The Pounce markings have stayed on well. I started quilting the center last night in a ~~ pattern (that I’m not sure I like) and the chalk marking are still nice and clear. I hope to get the whole thing finished this weekend. That’s the plan, anyway. ~smile~

    Lots of projects going on – can’t wait to see the finished quilting! Thanks for sharing on Midweek Makers

    Ellen here, yes I’m still following you.
    Without seeing the actual quilt it’s hard to say what the quilt needs, but possibly semi custom. The sashing looks like it wants something special, yes I listen to quilts!

    • Roseanne says:

      Hi Ellen – I am sure you do. They all have a story to tell. This quilt is so linear and those columns are just begging for something cool. ~smile~ Roseanne

    Wow, GREAT progress this week! I absolutely love how you both created the appliqued elephant. The Grunge fabrics are some of my favorites and it was the perfect choice for the elephant.

    Love the blue grey quilt, and that grey ombre fabric looks fantastic between the rows. It really gives it a neat effect.

    Thanks for showing pictures of how you used the stencil and pounce pad. It looks like it gives you a really clear, and neat, line. I like it!

    • Roseanne says:

      Hi Christine! Thanks for all the kind words. It didn’t seem like we accomplished much especially when the fourth column gave me trouble. It may never get done now. Grrr. You should see the elephant now with an eye, ears and a couple of toenails. OMG! Adorbs if I do say so myself. HAHA The Pounce pad was SOOOO easy to use, and as you mentioned, it left a nice clear line to stitch on. ~smile~ Roseanne

Please leave a reply - we would love to hear from you!
