I finally strayed away from free motion quilting and attempted cross hatch instead. Instead of drawing lines on, I used painters tape to guide me and it worked like a charm. I really love it now that it's washed and dried. It feels lighter than a stippled quilt. Don't get me wrong, I still love the stippling! (the picture of the back looks funny, but I swear, it looks fine in real life!)
When I laid it on the bed I thought "That's it! I need to have another baby." So, either I have to stop making quilts, or I'm in big trouble.
