Quilting Designs

So I got my X quilt pinned together but then I got stuck. I had no idea how I wanted to quilt it. So I started thinking about how I could play around with some designs in a drawing but see how they would fit onto my design. So I came up with this.

I took a plastic baggie and cut it apart.
Then I took a few small pieces of tape and attached it to my paper design.

I used a Sharpie to start drawing out ideas for my design. If you had a Vis a Vis pen you could wipe away your design if you weren't satisfied. I won't show you what I finally came up with but I just thought I'd share the idea.
Stay tuned next week for my giveaway!
