Oh to start stippling...

Yesterday I bought a darning foot for my sewing machine... after some practice, I hope to be able to try stippling (see example here) on a quilt I'm working on . Its basted, but I want to do some NICE stippling... home to try it out tonight after work, trip to Home Depot, dinner, and lifegroup? Ok, maybe this weekend....

I found the video showing how its done... thanks Crazy Mom Quilts!

Christin, your work is great. I've never used a darning foot. I think I'll try.

Its going to take some practice, that's for sure! After I put the feed dogs down its all ME to move the fabric around and make sure its even. I can't wait to get GOOD at this!
