Instead of Stippling….Try This!

Blue Flowers, FMQGood Morning, Quilters!

Are you tired of stippling or meandering?

Or–are you like me–and find stippling difficult to motor plan?

Try stitching straight line fills between motifs!

In this little quilt, I used the same thread (40 wt Sulky Rayon) to stitch the flowers and the background fill.   You could stitch the background using a finer weight thread like Sulky’s Poly Deco or Superior MicroQuilter.

Make a quick sample to see which effect you prefer!

I’m gardening this week–have to soak up all the summer I can!


Hope YOU are in YOUR garden today!
