Really nice job Aggi. Both on the quilt and free motion work. I just got a stippling foot for my Husqvarna for Christmas and trying to screw up my courage to try it. But yours looks like you've been doing it for years! :thumbup:

Nice job Aggi! Looks like you have been doing it for quite awhile! Wish I took to it like you do.

WOW!!! Great job. I wish I could be half as good as you and I have done it before. I need to be practicing but it is so frustrating when it doesn't look like I want it to. Yours is great!!!

Thanks Mary! I'm having alot of fun practicing! I worked on it until around 11 last night! I managed to get 14 of those designs on the quilt. I still have many more to go, and I plan to spend the rest of the day and night playing again!!

How do you manage the bulk of fabric to free up the square for doing the design? I would think those blocks that are along the edges would be fairly easy to get under the machine, but it's the ones that are deeper into the center of the quilt. I have only done free motion on pillow tops, so I can't imagine handling that much fabric and bulk to do free motion. You gals (and guys) are really something else.

Gail surprisingly it wasnt' too bad at all!!! You are not hauling as much fabric through the machine as you are keeping your quilt in the same direction only moving it side to side, up and down through the needle, so you are not moving it alot!
