Finaly is finished my daughter's quilt. There's been awhile since my last post but I've been very busy with the beginning of school and my family and my math students, well mother stuff. But here it is, I think it's very merry, what do you think?

Pfaff, novo quilt e stippling

I did this scheme to guide me trought.
This will be a quilt to my son's bed. It's a zig zag pattern and I did it like Amanda Jean it's much easier then piecing triangles.
I'm sorry for my portuguese readers but this post is enterily in english.

I just bought this machine, it's a second hand Pfaff, the one I had was a Singer and is no more suitable to the kind of work I'm doing now.
As you can see has a darning foot, so now all I'm doing is practicing, practicing. I'm a newbie in this thing of stippling.
My daughter's quilt is waiting but I hadn't yet the courage to start, I think I have to practice more.

I have this book to help me trought the process of machine quilting.
