Well, here it is. My first stippling(?) project. I put the (?) beside stippling because it sure doesn't look like the stippling I've seen on I have two maching quilt books arriving any day but grew too impatient and just wanted to do it!
Here's the back..yah, I know it's interesting huh? I did learn that I was putting the runner in the wrong way for stippling. No wonder I couldn't really see where I was going and what I was doing and learn. It actually doesn't look bad from the top if you don't look too closely, lol.
The fabric is dandelion girl by Moda using most of a charm pack and some extra fabric. Nice soft colors.

A Tisket A Tasket and few other things : )

I am participating in my first BOM and it's a good one. I remember wondering what the heck a BOM was?? A lady from my quilt guild posted the link in our group and when I saw the first block I knew I wanted in on this one. So cute and simple...simple, being the key word for me, lol.

This is my first block completed, turned out pretty cute I think. I love that a flickr group has been created for us to see other blocks completed. Some women are so creative and chose their own color scheme and added their own "twist" I am not there yet and stuck pretty close to the block shown.

This is a sweet little table runner I have complete(top) and will be my first stippling project ; )

This will be my first "BIG" stippling project. I just need to put the dark blue border ont he top. It will be for us so it won't really matter if I mess up alot, I can't wait to try it. I am waiting for two books to arrive on Machine Quilting that I ordered through amazon!!! This quilt is a disappearing nine patch. I love it for how easy it went together and I am all about easy!!
