Stippling Done!

I had a really big day in the sewing room yesterday...about 5 hours of stipple quilting! I was very keen to have it all done.


A good sight when I walked into the sewing room this morning with the quilting all done and not too much mess made in my stippling frenzy! lol!

These pics were taken of the quilt on the ironing board

I used about 6 reels of Gutermann thread. I was supposed to buy some King Tut thread on Friday at Spotlight to try but I forgot...I have been told the King Tut is really good but I couldn't fault the Gutermann thread.
The Neutrogena Hand Cream is really good for helping get a grip when quilting too!
Bye For Now

It looks fantastic, but how are your shoulders after 5 hours? The results are certainly worth it.

Hi Lisa, when I saw this quilt being shown on blogs I didn't feel particularly drawn to it .
Now seeing yours completed I would like to do it .
Was it a free BOM or where did it originate.
It looks beautiful, congratulations

Cathy said...

Wonderful work, how is the back though? What range of fabric did you use for this quilt, it's very pretty!!

Well done. you should be proud!
