    Ok, ok, I know I am as slow as christmas. I just now got through quilting and binding this huge thing. I think it turned out wonderful, and I am so very proud of it. It is king sized, so it took several shots to get the whole thing in the picture. If you guys will look at the border and tell me what you think, I got brave. I stippled it. I had never really tried that, and have only done free motion a few times. I have been reading all the hints here, and they really helped. I bought myselfa stencil to start, which helped me get a feel for it. Thank all of you guys for your encouragement. I feel like I can do anything just by watching and reading the posts here!
