I was looking through my stash of material for something white to add to Taylor's quilt and I came upon some bigger pieces. So I thought I'd through them together for Simon. And I've been dying to practice my stippling with my new Embroidery Foot. Which I received yesterday. I was/am so excited.
I ran out of white thread so I only got about half way around the outside edge. Stippling I think is harder than it looks. I'm glad I'm using Simon's new Car's blankie as my practice. I am definitely NOT a pro, but I love the crinkly way it looks. And, I don't remember who said it but they were right, use a thread color that matches your material. I was an absolute wreck sewing on the blue with the white thread. The backing of the quilt is a dark blue and looks horrible, but it is the back so I'm not too worried about it. This is some of my better stippling...But now I do see one part that I don't like too well.
P.S. Don't worry Staci, I'll eventually get to your's. (Unless you want to fight Simon Cooper for the Car's Blankie.)
