    that you can't cross over lines when stippeling?????
    is there really such a rule?
    i showed my cat quilt to someone, the only sourpuss in the buch, who said, "Oh too bad she crossed the lines". well, how ele do you quilt a fish????i can't believe that she said that.
    is there really a "NO CROSS" rule to siplleling

    I'm a rule breaker! If you like it, that is all that matters.

    There is a no cross rule but I don't think I'd bother to follow it if and when I try free motion. Too much else to worry about.

    In the "old" days, when stippling was usually done by hand, it was easier not to cross over, so there was an unwritten rule that you don't cross.

    With todays machines, that really doesn't apply anymore.

    The only time I would be concerned is if I were making a competition quilt. The judges could be picky, if it came down to 1 point, and 1 crossed over and 1 didn't, they might choose the one that didn't.

    I agree with everyone, it's my quilt, my way.

    Just enjoy

    Tell them you weren't stippling, you were meandering! The difference between the two is that you don't cross the lines when stippling but you do when meandering. Problem solved! :thumbup:
