Here are some of the pictures as I'm making progress with putting the quilted pieces together:

I am still thinking on which quilt to practice the Stippling on. I have put something together before I can start quilting. I really don't have much time to piece the quilt. So, I have to pick something less time consuming.
Can't wait for the baby to be completely feel better :-). And I will try to get more stippling done in this week.
Leah I have couple of questions for you:
1. While binding these quilted pieces if we happen to stitch generous 1/4inch at some places, should we go back and rip the stitches and start over again? Or if we can hide it using hand binding, should we do that? I personally feel that I can pull the fabric little bit, since cotton has some stretch and hide the mistake. Is this a good idea or practice?
2. Once bound, do you put extra stitches on top of these binding for the pieces to hold together? Or this is not necessary since the quilt will be strong to hold all the washes ?
Have a wonderful week!
