    I can't stipple to save my life, but thanks to you, you made it easier. I will try this your way.
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    Wow! Thanks! Just took a FMQ Class and still didn't get the stippling or the circles or most of it! Anyway, this makes sooooo much sense to me and I will be trying it very soon!

    Great idea -- I am a bit too left brained for stippling too, but I think this might work for me as well. Thanks much.

    Thank you so much Lady!!! Duh . . . I guess it's that left-brainy thing I can stipple on "small areas - like mug rugs and wall hangings", but go bonkers on the bigger things. Now, let's see how much difference this will make . . . I think I can, I think I can, and I will conquer!!

    I hate this part of quilting with a passion but WOW this is going to help me enormously. I too get lost when meandering. Thanks for the simple but effective tip. Two thumbs up for this idea thanks.

    I like this idea. Can you tell me how far down you would draw your first line. The total
    length of your quilt? I am a newbie.

    Yes, I would draw the first line over the entire quilt top so I'd have a path to follow all the way.

    I do pot holders for a senior center and am going to try your method. Will try using an iron off marker. Think this will make a great improvement in my production. Also thinking I will try doing a double size piece and then cut to size and bind. Thanks for this handy tutorial.
