Quilting the Mystery Quilt and Best of Web feature

I decided to use diagonal lines for my quilting so I used my Hera marker so I would have guide lines.I decided to use curved lines and while I'm not finished yet some interesting things are coming up...check out that corner! Pretty cool.
I like the way the quilting looks on the embroidery blocks too. I have a confession-I've never machine quilted over embroidery before. I always quilted around the embroidery. Now this isn't heavily quilted over the embroidery but still...
see-stitches right over the embroidery and looking good!
I'm one of several sewing/crafting blogs featured this week as Best of the Web at Pocketchange. Hop on over-its a fun blog for finding other blogs and I'm sure you'll enjoy the blogs featured this week-I know I have.

Congrats on being named as "Best of the Web" on Pocketchange. Also, I love how your quilting is coming out on the mystery quilt. Quilting right over the embroidery is brave (!) and it looks great.

I like your curved lines, Miri. It is really going to be a beauty!

I like what you have done here Miri, subtle but enough to give some definition without distracting from the embroidery. I too have never quilted over embroidery before but I may try it having seen yours!

Oh, thanks for showing that quilting over the emboridery. I have always wondered about doing that myself. Looks great.

I've linked to this post in my blog today as a great example of using a Hera Marker to answer some questions by my readers. Thanks!

What a pretty quilt! I came from Deb's, looking at the Hera use. How well does it work on big projects? Do the lines last a long time and withstand the large amount of manipulation that happens under a domestic machine with a big quilt?
