    Dumb question! But I really want to know.

    I have seen mention of something called a stipple several times. What is a stipple?

    Stipple, is a very small Meander stich. It really looks great on a background.

      image.jpgStipple is a quilting stitch which is a small close together meandering stitch. You can have micro stipples, which fill in the background behind a definitive design.

        I like to use small stippling around applique for a 3D effect. It does, however, stiffen the quilt.

            Thank you so much. Maybe someday I'll have the lingo down.

              Not a stupid question at all. If you don't ask, how are you supposed to know. Love Jean's answer. A photo is worth a thousand words.

                There is NO SUCH THING as a DUMB question!! Only dumb if you don't ask it!! Sometimes we all feel a little intimidated by other's very smart ideas, yet all of us are in a different spot as far as quilting goes. BRAVO for your asking! Brave lil' soul that you are! YOU have made people feel GOOD simply because just perhaps they could answer your question!

                  no dumb questions! That is how we learn by asking questions. Pictures are worth a thousand words. If you notice, too, the stitch lines do not cross either, but it is a continuous line of stitching.
