    This is so great! It is one of those, "Why didn't I think of that moment!" Thank you so much! This will help me greatly. I am literally afraid of stippling. With your help, I believe that I will now be able to do it and not get messed up within minutes. Yolanda

    I'm the exact opposite, I can do free motion stippling really well, bit it's the others that I have trouble with... I know I need to practice!

    Yes, I am one of those folks that does NOT want to break the rules and cross the line. Your method seems to allow for this and permit me to meander into those spaces where I would NOT have ventured before. Thank you for sharing your "out of the box" method.

    I like your idea better. It makes so much sense! I too do not like the 'row' method. I am going to try out your meandering ways to see if this is what I need to use when teaching my nieces stippling. Thanks for sharing. Don't you love those 'light bulb moments'?

    I just checked out your scrappy quilt. I really like the simplicity of it. I like the wide open spaces of the stippling vs. the tight designs. I think the quilts remain softer because of it.

    I can hardly wait to try your idea. It makes so much sense to me and perhaps my meandering will be less jerky. I find making smooth turns difficult and end up with lots of sharp points. Thank you.

    I agree, I can stipple no problem, but feathers are not so easy for me. You got any tips on mastering feathers? By the way, your quilt turned out great!

    Thank you for the tip. I have been wanting to try this but just couldn't grasp how to start.
    Fabric is like money, no matter how much you have it's never enough.

    OMG!! I have wanted to meander forever but have been so afraid to try. I also watch Leah and have saved her videos but not done it. I will definitely be doing this today and practicing. I have several Christmas table runners to quilt so this is perfect. Thank you, thank you.

    Great idea. Since I've been practicing on paper it has helped train the brain while practicing on my mini sandwiches so your idea I just tried and it reinforced the fact that I am very comfortable with the stippling. I felt like a pro when I snaked out your idea. Now I need to prove it on the real thing, my quilt top. Thanks for the idea.

    I echo Pinkiris! BRILLIANT!!! I follow Leah Day and am presently taking her Free Motion Quilting a Sampler from Craftsy. I have bought one of her books (365 FMQ Designs) and one of her DVDs From Daisy to Paisley. She is an excellent teacher, however you have helped me wrap my brain around stippling/meandering so now maybe I won't get stuck in a corner! Thanks! Linda

    What a great idea! You wouldn't have a tutorial on feathers too, would you? I am beginning to think I'm feather challenged!
