33. Quilt Stippling in a Spinning Square

Ready to tackle another Spinning Square block? Today we're free motion quilting this block with an All-Over version of Stippling. Basically just wiggle over the block randomly and try to avoid those pesky areas of seam allowance.

The nice thing about this design is if you don't want to quilt over your T-shirt fabric in the center, you don't have to! Just wiggle around it rather than over it and your block will still look great and be secured.
The Spinning Square Block is definitely popular in the Building Blocks Facebook group where members have been showing off awesome blocks with all sorts of t-shirt fabric, decorative prints, and even embroidery designs in the center.

All over quilting really is a great way to finish a quilt quickly by adding texture to the surface and securing the layers together, but not throwing loads of time into the design. There will always be those quilts that just need to get together and get done and Stippling, or any of the Independent Designs is a great way to finish them.

So that's it for today! Swing back by tomorrow to see how Josh quilted this design too!

Let's go quilting,
