WIP Week 6 - Stippling of a Cat.

The last few days I have been stippling. And it has been fun! I think I must be in the stipple groove after finishing off the last quilt a few weeks ago cause so far this has been easy and smooth sailing. All my curves are curvey and even, no jagged ones lurching off into their own world, all is smooth. I'm sitting there, pedal to the floor thinking how much I like doing this!

I have quilted around each cat and then stippled the 4 patch blocks inbetween. Then a few rows of straight stitching on the outer border and more stipple around the edge, but this time in a yellow thread for some interest. Don't know how clearly that comes up in the last photo. I have the binding picked out, a deep spotty blue. At this rate, I think I will be sewing the label on the back on the weekend. Love that bit!


Thank you too for those who took the time to comment about Daz and his big week this week. Your comments and thoughts mean a lot to us, thank you. :)

That quilting looks fantastic! I can't wait to see the entire piece. Let's hope ABC have their heads on straight and series 2 gets accepted. Living a dream is scary -- and the best of all worlds.
