Tried something new and it worked!

I generally, don't "do" stippling, but I tried this foot to help keep the curves more uniform, and surprise - it worked very well for this area.  This is the corner treatment for "Pineapple Parade". 

The foot is one of 3 for quilting that came in one Janome package, and is round clear plastic, with several guides on it, for various size circles or lines or ... stipples.  This corner needed larger curves. 

That worked pretty well, so I tried something new in this  outermost border on "Pineapple Parade".    (The batting is not trimmed yet.)  You can see the foot on this photo.  BTW, this foot does NOT hop.  It took me some time to learn how to use it, but in the end, it does the job.    




Today I'm sewing on the binding - my favorite part.  8-)))   This quilt is about 70" x 90".

Good looking quilting.
That is a very interesting looking foot. Does it have a specific purpose?

Your stippling is looking good Elaine! I have a Janome so this foot came with my machine. I always thought it was for sewing over lumpy seams when doing FMQ (that's what I used it for). Then I read on Amy Johnson's blog (she of ruler quilting fame) that it's actually an "echo quilting" foot! Used it a while back and it does work for that and now thanks to you, I know it works for stippling too.

Love the quilting on the white or cream color! You have become a real master quilter, Miss Elaine, no doubt about it! Like Debra in Massachusetts, I can't wait to see your photos of the finish and hope you'll put in plenty of drool-worthy close up shots.

Your stippling looks great! I don't think I've seen that foot before - I didn't get one with my Janome. Is it specifically for stippling?
