Free Motion Quilting Tutorial Series- Video #5: Stippling and Meandering Stitches

Welcome to the 5th video of my Free Motion quilting tutorial series. In my previous videos, I went over with straight line stitches and what designs you can make with it. Now it’s time for stippling and meandering stitches. Basically, it is an all-over doodling design or you can do it on one section of the quilt called micro stippling. In micro stippling spaces between stitches are tight making the quilt way too dense. Moreover, I would not prefer doing micro stippling as an all-over design because it would just take too much time to fill up the whole quilt. 

On the other hand, you can also make these stitches with more spaces in between the lines. These kinds of stitches are the ones you can use as an all-over design for your quilt. In this video, I will show you three stippling and meandering stitches designs where the spaces vary. Additionally, a tip when working with stippling and meandering stitches is to try to always keep the edges round and not pointy. 

For these cool designs, I used my JUKI TL-20106. I got this from Timm at Sew-Mini Things, and you can have yours too at a discount! He offers free shipping in 48 contiguous states. All you have to do is to mention that you saw the machine on my YouTube channel. Visit his website HERE

Also, I would like to share with you the LED light strip I have installed on my sewing machine. It is convenient whenever I’m working on my stitches. Check it out HERE

Here’s my video on free motion quilting tutorial about stippling and meandering stitches. I hope you enjoy it!

Happy Quilting!
