The Plunge

Posted on July 19th, by Amy in work in progress. 7 comments

Well being uncertain, and a little bored of my straight line quilting – I took the plunge! I am so glad that I did :)
I’ve been practicing stippling/loop-d-loop quilting, but had yet to put it on a quilt – I was chicken! Having watched videos online and read about stippling – you aren’t supposed to cross over your previous stitching. . . rules are meant to be broken right? The loop-d-loop seems to come more natural to me :)
I am about halfway done – I’ll post more pictures, including the back once it’s complete. I’ve learned so much with this quilt it seems fitting now that it be my first attempt at stippling. Have a great weekend!

    I’ve stippled a few quilts in my day and they all overlap and are all over the place-lol.

    Your project looks fantastic!

    You go girl! You are inspiring me to just do it. I’ve been practicing and practicing, but afraid to touch a quilt. Yours looks great!!!

    looks great! I agree that loop-d-loop is a lot easier and more forgiving vs. stippling. When I first was learning, I would toss all my efforts in the washer/dryer before handing them in, so the results were so much less noticable.
    When ever I see new quilters work I always think “wow, that looks great, why didn’t my firsties look this good?”
    I’m a little jealous.
