Black Light

For anyone that has not seen a black light used before....this is what it is.
I removed my light bulb from my little bar light and put a black light in it's place.  I purchased the black light at Lowe's.  Then I ordered the black light pencil on-line.  So when you use the black light pencil with the black light...light bulb your pencil will glow.  It's great when marking any light or white quilt.  And it's TOTALLY invisible in natural light or any other light besides a black light.  And it does wash out with a damp rag.  

On this quilt.  The pencil did show in the red fabrics....but came out just fine with a damp rag.

Hopefully this was informative.

Vine using black light

This is Diane's cute little quilt I'm currently working on.  I love this spineless feather!  It's a good feather for fun and bright fabric! I've found the best way to do this feather is to draw out the spine for a reference line using a black light shown above. :)  

This is Deb's fun baby quilt she made.  I did my freehand swirl on it.

This is Jim's quilt he did up for a baby boy blanket.  I did the pattern 11" Leaf Pile on it.  Great pattern for this quilt!
