I hope to get the binding on this quilt today and send it off soon to it’s new home. I used a Tula Pink Hushabye jellyroll plus some yardage. As a newbie, I wanted to keep it simple so decided on a rail fence pattern. I could have sewn the long strips together for this but that wouldn’t have given me the randomness I wanted, so I cut the strips to length (6 1/4”) and then put them together.
I was scared to death to do the stippling, but after much practice and coffee I dove in! It’s not perfect by any means but I’m mostly satisfied with it. There are a few spots that may get a do-over by hand where the stitches got too big. If you click on the last picture you can see the stippling a little better. I'm not quite brave enough to share a real close-up:)
(I’m keeping a “Things I learned about free motion quilting from my first quilt” list and may have to share it later.)
If you look closely you can see the ducks in the print. Aren’t they cute?
I wanted to add a personalized detail to the back and used the embroidery feature on my Brother for this. It’s blurred out on this picture since it is still a secret, but it’s the owner-to-be’s name with a little decorative stitching.
I think I’ve overcome my fear of stippling and it feels good!
