Welcome to the Quilting Board!
Here is tiny stipple. I bet everyone would have their own spin. Like handwriting!
I have been wondering what folks meant when they said stippling....thanks for this thread. It looks hard. I think I will have to stick to SID.
I don't do a lot of stippling these days so I really had to HUNT for this!! LOL* This is what I "like" my stippling to look like, but I'll be truthful, this one was just one of those days that everything meshed and it turned out consistent. That doesn't always happen. Quilting is as unique as handwriting. Don't stress over it!!! Also realize that everything gets better with practice! Good luck!

Do you see the Leah Day articles? check out her stipple tips! I think you draw a line and then stipple over it. More or less curvy...check out what she says!

I always think of jig saw puzzle pieces while I'm doing my meandering. For me it's a lot of fun.
The man who speaks the truth is always at ease
Everyone has his/her own 'signature' stipple style. However, if you try to make a horseshoe shape each time before curving in another direction, you will soon get into the rhythm.I think consistency is what makes or breaks the look.
My biggest problem with any FMQ is not watching where I am going and 'paint myself in a corner or dead end'. Then I have to rip stitches. A neat tip is to watch ahead of your sewing machine- where you're going instead of where you are. And practice- lots.
