    At first I was a better ripper than stippler, but that has changed with lots of practice. Hang in there.

    Well as you have and will be hearing - most of us have been there. Don't give up but don't get frustrated either, there is always another day and another quilt - Thank Goodness

    A positive attitude may not solve all your problems, but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort :lol:

I found out...1. There's a lot of stippling in a small space. 2. Stippling is difficult to unsew. 3. I decided I didn't want to stipple after all on this particular quilt, so will be using a different method. Ayyyeyiieeeyiieeee!
    Oh, and most important 4. Check your bottom soon after a few stitches!
    i THINK WE HAVE ALL DONE THAT!!!
