WIP Wednesday - Week 3 - Stippling a Rainbow.

This is what I have been doing for the last 2 days, shoving a huge quilt through my machine! I'm doing a medium meandering stipple and must say I am pleased with how it has come out so far. I think using a new needle and 100% cotton does wonders. Just so smooth and flowing, no tension issues, no catching, dream stippling! I've done 4 rows of straight stitch in the ditch along the black border. Grace is excitied. She stands by the machine and asks "Have you finished my quilt yet?" I'd say by this time next week the answer to that will be yes!

You're so brave. I've quilted 2 quilts on my machine, and had so many thread breakages, and tension issues. It's so frustrating!
