This month's tutorial was from Don Linn (Mr. Quilt), who shared a method of transferring designs from a paper design to the quilt top via some tulle and an embroidery hoop. This is a very versatile method, much easier than trying to use a light box (which I don't own) or holding a design up to the window to trace it onto fabric (which always seems to slip and give me problems). I'm sure I will use this method again. You can check out the actual tutorial here.
I copied the design Mr. Linn graciously provided by tracing it onto the tulle using his instructions. I then heat set the design and used a water soluble blue pen to transfer it to the fabric.

Next month will be Leah Day's tutorial. I can hardly wait!
