and stuck . i gave up after one try but now i am going to use this method. thanks.

What a great idea. My brain won't do stippling either, so I will give this a try! I have a long arm and all I can do are pantographs because I am so afraid to fmq and get stuck or make a mistake on the quilt.

This is so great! It is one of those, "Why didn't I think of that moment!" Thank you so much! This will help me greatly. I am literally afraid of stippling. With your help, I believe that I will now be able to do it and not get messed up within minutes. Yolanda

I'm the exact opposite, I can do free motion stippling really well, bit it's the others that I have trouble with... I know I need to practice!
