I wasn't clever enough to come up with this technique of tape marking quilt lines, but I'm sure glad that Jacquie at Tallgrass Prairie Studio shared her information on this technique:

Since I don't like marking my quilts because there is always at least one chalk or pencil marking that will not come out, I'm happy to discover this method. After quilting next to the tape, I then ran a line down the quilted line and then placed the tape next to that new line.

This process didn't take very long. I used the same tape until it was no longer sticky and then replaced it with another. In total, I used three pieces of tape for this 40 x 53 inch quilt.

  1. Thanks for leaving a comment on my blog! I am bookmarking your blog to read :-). Nice to meet a fellow treadler and quilter online! I love this baby quilt and also use tape to mark straight lines very handy. I learned it from someone a long time ago, but I've also learned a lot from Jacquie Gering at Tall Prairie Grass studio and have gotten brave and done quite a bit more modern quilting. Jacquie is coming to our guild in SW Ontario, Canada in April and doing a trunk show and a class for use. I was thrilled to get into the class.
