Cars Quilt - My First Stipple
So I have been longarm quilting for about a year now and have never done a stipple. It isn't because I haven't tried. But everytime I tried, I would always cross a line. The puzzle piece ended up being a loop. The customer just wanted her grandson's quilt "nailed together" so I decided to give the giant stipple another go. And it came out surprisingly well. The biggest surprise was how fast I was able to finish the quilt using this all-over freemotion.
I normally SID the border. My philosophy has always been if the customer took the time to put a border on it, then it warrants some attention. But the customer just wanted it to hold together. So I decided to run over the border with the
stipple. I didn't want the border to stick up so I 'hit the mark' (Sue Patten 101) running over the edge of the border in a couple of places. I hope she likes it.
My life has changed in the last couple of years - some bumps, I retired from quilting, and then I moved to Texas. I'm anxious to see what new adventures await me in the next phase of my life.
