Correct me if I am wrong, but stippling is like corneli work on an iced cake... one continuous wriggly line.... but bigger curves....

What a great description! Absolutely right! Never really looked at it like that, but it is...! Imagine a little caterpillar dipped in color and allowed to wander all over the quilt top...or a snake..though those images could be disturbing to some I guess, ...anyway it is squiggles all over. Some modes of stippling also include the more graphic geometric stitching. Some quilt police would debate that. It is simply put...even ,consistent patterned stitching used to fill an area. These stitches be very close and often help to define. All over stippling is a true meandering appearance covering the entire quilt.

Stippling to me looks like jig saw puzzle pieces. I love doing it.

Sounds funny, but my mother in law taught me " Big Head Little Neck"
It made it easier for me to remember the pattern as I was going along. 8)

I heard to not cross over previous stitching. Is there some dire consequence, or is it just design? :oops:

some quilt snob might look down her nose at it but i'm pretty sure the Berlin Wall won't go back up. :wink:

i seem to recall hearing or reading somewhere that in a strictly technical sense it isn't stippling if the lines cross each other anywhere.

i try really hard to not worry much about such technicalities. i'll be happy enough if my first free motion attempt is simply not a complete disaster. (don't place any bets. i still haven't worked up the nerve to try. LOL)

I'm not a quilt snob, but that is what I was taught, and that is what I was told is the technique called stippling.
