This quilt, made by my customer, Grace, shows a decorative loop pattern which can be done as an alternative to stippling. It simply goes up close to the applique work. Usually the applique does not need outlining as well, but that depends on the individual quilt and the design of the applique.
This double wedding ring quilt, made by Jan, has an allover pattern; "Deb's Feathers" designed by Deb Guiessler. The quilting was executed on the Statler Stitcher. This is an inexpensive alternative to doing special quilting in the individual spaces of the rings. It creates a lovely, flat and decoratively quilted result.
