Dear Evangelina......

Dear Evangelina...I know that you have not been sleeping well without your quilt.  Please excuse me....but I decided to experiment with your quilt and made some feather stitches that I had never ever ever done before.  It is all done now but the binding and you should have it soon.
 Dear ME,  Did I really grab impulsively for those washable Crayola markers or not????  Panic in the quilting room!  I have never washed a quilt without the binding before...stay tuned..it is in the cold water wash as we speak(:  I think that the pix below is a wet quilt!!

I did the same thing last week!!! I grabbed a not-washable marker and marked away!!! I had to dump it in the kitchen sink with Oxy Clean and it came out well enough. Then it had to dry on the rack for 24 hours before I could finish the quilting. It all came out when I washed the finished quilt in washer... Those washable markers you gave us for Christmas washed out easily, the other, not so much!!!
