The Plunge

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!

I don't even know what stippling is-but it looks like you did a great job at it! Love that quilt.

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.
