    Hi Lenny,

    Stippling is a form of free-motion quilting to fill in an area of a design. It's usually much tighter in design than normal free-motion quilting would be. At least that's my interpretation of it, and how I use it. :D

    :thumbup: I agree, Lenny, and it kind of resembles the shape of a puzzle piece.
    Meandering is kind of like stippling, but it is a larger design and usually used for filling in spaces larger than you would fill in with stippling.
    When stippling is used around a motif inside of a quilt block, it can help the motif to stand out.

    Hi Lenny,
    There are many video tutorials on stippling and meandering on YouTube. If you go to their site, type either term into their search box and you will find lots of tips and ideas on how to do this :D:D:D
