    1st attempt free-motion stippling

    This was my 1st attempt @ free-motion stippling...I used variegated purple thread.

    Please be honest...How'd I do?

    You did a good job! I find free motion stippling one of the hardest for me to do......I think all free motion requires a lot of practice.

    Very nicely done. I see only 1 crossed line and I had to really look hard to find it. If this was your first attempt at stippling it's incredibly well done. The variegated purple thread doesn't stand out it's very subtle adding some more dimension, nice touch. Congratulations, on a job well done.

    I think you did great! its always tricky trying to get that 'bone shape' that you see so often in quilts, I am still trying to master it haha.. I was told by an experienced quilter to think of the tip of a bone and try get that shape down and work in small squares...I am still working on it haha...I think you did a very nice job and I love the colors and your variegated thread! very nicely done

    I think you did a good job. The quilt is well covered and the spacing looks good. Well done!

    I think you did great. I have not done this yet. Only practiced a little so far. Keep up the good work, you should be proud.

    You did GREAT! I agree any free motion takes practice to where it comes easy to you....I have a pattern but have NOT tried it yet. what kind of sewing machine did you do this on?

    Looks great. I love fmq. I try to practice every day for awhile. I have a big quilt I almost have finished and want to follow some of Leah Days patterns for the quilt.

    I got this machine yesterday, and had only straight-stitched on it 3 times before.

    Beautiful quilt and quilting. I do a large stipple and love it and love doing it. You just need to make more quilts. You are very good.
