    Been stippling for quite a while now and still every now and then have to rip out some stitches. Ugh. Other than that, for me, stippling or meandering is the way I love to quilt. Can't follow straight lines or stitch in the ditch, so it is the best alternative quilting for me.

    Have been there and done that. Am getting better at stippling - but am never quite satisfied. Often when I look at my work later I decide it isn't as bad as I first thought. We are our worst critics I have found.

    Wow, that's awful.

    I got a little confused when you said to Check your bottom. Then had to laugh at my confusion. It's been a crazy few days in my world.

    Hope all is good for you now and that you keep on keeping on with that stippling.

    DON'T GIVE UP!!! I was told by a quilting instructor to take a paper and pencil and meander a pattern the size I wanted to stipple. This apparently kind of sets the brain for size. Then don't stipple for more than 20 minutes at a time. Wear quilting gloves(machingers) to help grip the fabric. Most important............have a glass of wine and RELAX. It will happen and you will have a beautiful quilt that you can say "I Did It!" Enjoy!!!!!

    I agree with junegerbracht - my ripper has always been my best friend - and she's a slow process

    I hear ya sister it's not my favorite thing to do either. I am very rarely satisfied with the results. I have discovered that I really enjoy hand quilting. Who would of thought! But this board has been a great help.

    Obviously, we are all in the same boat, LOL.
    so many quilts to make, so little time.
