Ok thanks Kris . I honestly thought they were the same

You're welcome Barbara. I used to think they were too but the "experts" say that stippling lines are 1/8 to 1/4 of an inch apart. Anything bigger falls into the meandering category. Some say with meandering your lines can cross (to make other shapes) but they never cross in stippling.

Kris I am always happy to share my quilts. The pattern is called Strip Search by G E Designs. It is made from a "bright" jelly roll. I added the sashing to try and calm it down, as it turned out too bright even for me. It seemed the most likely candidate for my beginner FMQ, as any mistakes will be hidden by the bright fabric.

Denise I love your colors and think the sashing works well. I admit for myself I prefer softer colors, but I know several teens who would think this is HOT. And I have gotten used to using brighter colors on some projects, (like Bonnie Hunter's Easy Street)I agree that this is a perfect project to work on. I Love the energy of the quilt.

Thanks for sharing. BTW,  I love that  multicolored stripe fabric.  Would you happen to know it's name or the manufacturer?

Thanks for the site Barbara. It is really helpful to see how to draw the designs. I especially appreciated the Puffle design which shows the wrong way to draw the pattern, and how it goes wrong from there, and the right way to draw the pattern. Very helpful. I have so much to learn.

I will do my best to identify the multicolored stripe fabric if I can figure out which multicolored stripe fabric you like. For example is it the left hand block second row from the top with yellow, blue,and red stripes, the center block in the second row from top with a white background, wavy stripes in all colors and little random dots, or maybe the right hand block in the second row from the top with a white background and even stripes of red pink and green?

Hi,

I decided to do a basket weave for the middle. And then some pratice before I get to the rest. lol

Hope you can make it out.

The block on the right was the first one I did, (a mix of different stuff. Getting the feel for the stitches.) the one on the left was better but still need lots more pratice before I actually do the block.

This was the very first time I tried these. lol The day flew by and I did have fun with it, When the price comes down on the class again I'll sign up for it.

You are in luck. Click on the above hyperlink to go to Leah Days website. Look in the right column at the top for a picture of Leah Day and the Craftsy logo. Click on the logo to get 50% of Leah Days class. I loved this class. Learning how to modify my free motion quilting foot was priceless.

Barbara et al,

what's different in the craftsy class from what's free onLeah's site? I did not make the quilt she's working on.
