Is meandering really random or do you have some sort of plan in mind when you start? I got so lost on this quilt I'm trying to FMQ that I thought I was half done when I got to one corner, but it turns out I was finished! Beats me how I got there.
How far apart do you keep your hands?
Is it normal to get weird jumps on some seams? Is that because the seams are not flat enough?
