I finished quilting one of the angels today and had some fun playing with stippling. I often procrastinate trying to come up with new quilting designs and try to avoid stippling again. But the ladybugs in the outer border seemed to call for stippling. It was an easy way to get the border done and not get caught up in my usual OCD quilting. I used the spaces between the ladybugs for the zooming around and found it fast. It occurred to me that a design like this could be a teaching tool - to quilt around shapes and not overdo it.
And the ladybugs seem to stand out. Now, it's time to put some binding on the quilt.
