    I've finally finished my Thinking Outside the Block quilt...and pretty much decided I'm doing a largish stipple (meander) throughout the "center" (it's queen size and I'm doing it on a domestic machine...nothing else seemed to be working). The borders are almost solid black and was hoping to quilt something a little more interesting there.

    Any suggestions for someone with somewhat limited FMQ ability? I tried some feathering but don't seem to be able to retrace stitching lines very well. Would love some ideas or maybe a link to suggestions.

    Thanks so much!
