Stippling Revelation

Olivia and I like to lay in bed and watch YouTube quilting tutorials as she is falling asleep. Last night, while searching for machine quilting clips I had a revelation - I can stipple on my Singer by purchasing a little $10 darning foot .

The look stippling gives quilts is so cozy and comfy, and I cannot wait to try it! Here's one I found on Flickr called Lucy's Quilt by Mia BB .

Don't you just love that crinkly look?

Here is the tutorial I watched on YouTube. It's by Pat Slone , who wrote a book about machine quilting.

Now I have to count down the days until my darning foot arrives so I can try stippling myself. I cannot wait!
