    What a funny Mardi Gras lobster quilt! The beads look 3D.......possibly added later? Great job!

    Aside comment....I broke 9 Organ needles yesterday trying to FMQ...Finally slowed down, and it was better, but would take a month of Sundays to free motion anything...plus the bottom stitching looks like it just lays there , while the front stiching is really nice on my Juki...It will be awhile til I waste that much time again, I'm afraid. It will remain just SITD...

    I do what I call a large stipple. I love doing it and I love the look. As long as I like it that is all that matters to me.

    This was one of the hardest things for me to learn on my longarm ... I finally figured out that I'm a loopy loo kind of gal -- I like being able to cross the lines and I even have graduated to hearts and stars every once in awhile. I did a polyester trip around the world quilt recently where I put freezer paper over the top of the quilt (once it was loaded onto the longarm) and using a sharpie I drew my meandering lines onto the freezer paper. I had to do it several times before I got a design I was happy with. Once I did that, I put it on the back table so I could follow it like a pantograph - it turned out pretty good - even if I do say so myself. Practice, practice, practice.

    I try to remember that I quilt with my face close to the fabric..but when its viewed by others, they are looking at the overall effect. I do quilt some for others. I do not have a computer on my long arm. I KNOW I make mistakes, so I tell my customers If you can FIND it, I will fix it. I have not had one come back yet.

    I'm not the greatest at it either but mine passes. Yours will get better with practice.
    Be the best that you can be at everything you do.

    A gal in my guild, who has won ribbons in national shows said getting the moves down is a lot easier if you practice on paper, So I totally agree with this post

    I fill the same way also. The fabric and thread that is wasted trying to learn can add up. I decide to make pot holder and hot pads for the children to practice on. Anything I give them with what is suppose to look like stippling they are just thrilled to death just rubbing their hand over it.
