The Blue Butterfly Bag was started several weeks ago, and I was waiting for some inspiration for the machine quilting! I didn't want to detract from the beautiful fabrics, so eventually I decided to quilt the back of the bag in a very simple cross hatch design, with some straight rows along the lower border. I marked the design using a Clover Hera Marker, and using a variegated blue/grey Valdani 40wt quilting thread, I was able to keep the stitching straight by quilting along the indentations made by the plastic marker. Now I just need to decide what design to quilt on the front of the bag!
