stipple stipple stipple

by Julie Hirt

I am so excited about my stipple job! I was so afraid to try free motion and even went out to buy a template, neither of the two Joann’s stores I visited had the style I wanted.  So I just went for it and I think I did pretty good!

There are a few mess ups and I did cross lines 3 or 4 times, but I did way better than I thought I would.  Definitely worth saving myself the money to have it quilted.  Plus I ended up enjoying it because it relaxed me.  Took a couple hours but they went fast.

I still need to tack the binding on the back, then I’ll post more info and pics.

Weird thinking that I hadn’t ever really used a sewing machine until a few weeks ago.   This is addicting!  But all of my hobbies are for the first few weeks…  we’ll see if this one holds up.

  1. Now, see, the template wasn’t available for a good reason. I bet you couldn’t even find those places where you crossed a stitching line !
    Great job.

    This is one craft that usually stays WITH a person……..hope you love it for a lifetime ! You’re off to a beautiful start.

  2. I just told someone today it was a good thing I didn’t have to waste money on a stencil! I hope this one stays with me, I love the finished product. Thanks Dolly!
