Thanks for taking the extra time to take and post pictures of the work in progress. That is very helpful. Are you doing this on a domestic sewing machine, a mid arm or a long arm?

Have you considered selling your designs? You are very gifted.

dls...  Your comments are humbly appreciated!  I haven't given much thought to selling my designs, but it would be a possibility.  Not sure how I would go about doing it, if I decided to.  

Also, I use a Janome 6600 which I believe is considered a domestic mid-arm?  It handles this type of quilting like a dream, but so does my vintage Singer 15-91.  Just take your time and have fun with it.  Before you draw on your fabric...  make sure you starch TWICE... that way, when you draw with a cheap mechanical pencil on the muslin, it's drawing on the starch and not the fabric which will wash out!

Lori, the easiest way for an independent designer to sell their patterns is at www.craftsy.com/patterns. No fees to sell. Take your existing sketches, scan (it will be most useable if you scan an 8.5x11 page size image at a time) and save as a .pdf file. Then just upload as a .pdf pattern to craftsy.com

Have you tried the Fons&Porter mechanical marking pencil? The graphite removes easier than a regular mechanical graphite lead. It also has white lead for marking on dark fabric. Refill lead is reasonably priced, especially if you wait for a sale. You can also just use the Fons&Porter lead in a regular .9mm mechanical pencil.
