    Well, life happens... I sure hate we missed it! :cry: (feeling guilty yet?? No pressure though... :lol: )

    You're a quilter now, so rule #1 after completion- Take pictures for your personal catalog (to show us really :lol: ) in case it is ever stolen, or just to see your own progress. I promise you'll look back & be amazed!! (in my case it is usually because "I forgot I made that one") Anyway, now I've spent my 2 cents, so I'll shut up. :D I am so glad you're stippling now. Congrats to the Step-Son as well!!!

    When the stitching lines cross, just make sure it does it more than just once and then I call it meandering instead of stipple. Semantics. A rose is a rose...... Pam :lol: :lol: :lol:

    hi, When I first started stippling I took a piece of material, sandwiched it with batting and backing, about 9 inches sq. and practiced stippling. I acquaint it with playing the piano. you must get a rythum going so you don't end up with "thread throw-up" like the teacher taught us. It is really fun after you get the hang of it. and yes it looks like puzzle pieces sewn all over the quilt. Practice, practice, practice.

    CARLA!!

    I agree with you wholeheartedly! I am terrified of messing up months of my patchwork, designing, etc. with messed-up quilting that I either:

    1. leave the quilt as a top
    2. do VERY basic hand-quilting (so I have a chance of finishing it some day
    3. tie the quilt (which makes some people feel the need to tell me that my finished product is not in fact a "real" quilt-- meanies!), or
    4. acutally mess it up trying to feed it through my machine!

    I would really love to try FMQ and other machine-quilting techniques, but I am so worried to mess something up, or have my Kenmore machine laughed at by the Pfaffers at my local quilt shop.

    *sigh* :shock:

    table runners and goldfish quilts are the perfect place to practice any type of machine quilting, or hand for that matter. however doing something that small is WAAAYYYYY easier than doing a quilt i've done 3 twins (not so bad) and 3 queens ( pretty tuff) even with all the tricks i've learned i have decided to do them in quarters from now on.

    I need some tips on attaching a photo. Do I disable or enable anything?
