I’m in love…

with free motion quilting…stippling…whatever it’s called.

I had two quilts basted & ready for quilting, one I had no clue how I was going to quilt and another I was planning on doing straight line quilting.  Normally I’d start the one in my comfort zone and knock the straight line quilting out, but one day last week I was feeling gutsy and just took the leap.  I haven’t looked back since…except maybe when it was 11 o’clock at night and my eyes could no longer focus.  It’s coming along nicely…so nice (in my humble opinion) that I’m thinking my hexagon quilt (slated for straight line quilting) is going to be stippled.  The only thing I didn’t count on was the time commitment and massive amount of thread I’ve gone through!

That looks great! Stippling can be intimidating and you've done such a wonderful job.
