I am still new to quilting. I have only quilted six quilts. I guess that is alot. LOL! I love quilting. I taught myself how to stipple and I love it. I have looked at the spray but have not tried using it yet. That is my next step, spending more money on good batting a spray. For now I just use pins and cheap batting. After the quilt top is finished I make a quilt sandwich using pins. Then I fix up my sewing machine with the darning foot. After I practice a bit on some scrapes I just dive right in. I love the motion of the stippling. I could do it for hours. Just love the free motion of it. I guess that is why they call it FREE MOTION quilting. Then after that my next favorite part, binding. I could do that for hours. I don't know if this helped anybody but it is how I do it for now. I am sure I will upgrade to better ways as I learn.
This is my second try at stippling. I love how it turned out. This is one of the Quilts for Kids quilts. I have my second kit at home and just need to buy more fabric for my second donation quilt.
