I hate to say this, but I finally gave stippling a try for the first time! I've been wanting to learn for a long time, but as with so many things in my life, never got around to it. It was really fun to learn, and probably good that I started on a baby sized quilt rather than anything large. My skills (if you could call them that), are far from perfect, and I of course had to use my seam ripper in a couple of areas, but overall I'm really excited that I finally took the plunge.
Let me correct that. I was not excited when I finally had my quilt spray basted together and ready to quilt at 10pm the other night and realized I had ordered the wrong foot online. I ordered it months ago and never bothered to open the packaging. Luckily a little local shop had a generic darning foot that fit my machine that I was able to get to replace the even feed foot that I had purchased :). I guess eventually they'll both get a lot of use, right?!
I finished the binding on this little quilt tonight, will show more of it once I can get a pic in daylight!
Do you do your own machine quilting? Any thoughts? I'd love to hear them!
