    Here they are: The white is about 15 x 15 and the green about 12 x 12. I had so much fun making them

    This is one technique that is so totally beyond my comprehension. I know that you do it with your quilting techniques, but I can't imagine anything I quilted turning out so lovely.

    Those are both gorgeously done! Did you use chalk? stencils? It's not really as hard as it looks, is it? Love the feather stitching the Amish are known for! Can't wait to try my hand at it! :D :D :D 8)

    I marked them with a water soluble pen and the truth is that is not hard at all. I marked them on Sunday and that night did a little sewing (the center grid and the shapes around it. On Monday night finish that and started the microquilting. On Tuesday night finish the quilting and washed it and wednesday squared it and binded. The most difficult part is keeping the lines straight, especially on the curves. The microquilting takes time to control, but once you have it, it is hard to go back to big stipples. I loved making it and can see myself making many more.

    The pattern is not my design. It is by Joannie Zeier Poole and her work is just to die for.

    Thank you for telling the technique. Do you have to do much smaller stitches on the curves? Go really slow on curves, right? It appears to be trapunto looking. Is it? They are not stuffed with batting. They just look it, right? We can see the green design better and it's a dynamite design. Knowing me, I wd probably make my own designs. Will you ever stipple again? Or is the microquilting just addictive? Fantastic work! :D

    Wow! those are lovely.
    I can't imagine how you do these.
    I am visual learner so would need to see in person and then lots of practice, practice, practice.
    Nicely done.

    I go really slow on the curves.

    Is not trapunto. I used wool batting and it puffs up without the need for trapunto. It is really addictive and I am already working on my own design. I hate to copy other people's work. I never work with patterns, but I didn't want to spend time drawing. I wanted to sew!!!

    I thought it looked puffed up! That's why I love it so! Know what you mean about using other people's designs. It is so easy to design something I just wish other people were like you and wd try it! :wink: :D

    I have an Artista 630. It is a great machine and I would recommend it to anyone. It was given to me almost new and I have nothing to complaint about with this machine. For doing this kind of work I used my open toe darning foot. Many people recommend the closed toe, but your stitches are so small and there is no applique, so the open one is better to see where are you going.

    I am in total love with the 830; yes, the one that costs as much as a car, but I may never own one.
