A few years ago, I had seen all the stippling I had ever wanted to see. As quilters learned to machine quilt, it seemed to be the most popular option. Or if quilters didn't want to or couldn't make a decision about the quilting, it became "just stipple it". (Most times they really meant just large meandering lines around the quilt.)
I said I would never stipple a quilt again. There were too many other options out there to try. I had just scratched the surface of all that could be done.
Today, I sat at my machine stippling, yes, stippling a section of my newest quilt. And, yes again, chewing on those words.
In this case, I felt it was the right thing to do. The quilting compressed this section highlighting some areas and adding a delightful texture to the light blue batik fabric.
Are you a fan of stippling or not?
Have you ever fallen back and done a technique that you said you would not do again?
Am I the only, lonely, one?
