What Is Stipple Quilting?

By

Definition: Stipple quilting is made up of closely-spaced, random quilting stitches that do not cross and tend to flatten the quilted area. Stipple quilting is often used around applique motifs.

Meander quilting is similar, but with stitches not as closely spaced. For both methods, quilting stitches are generally curved.
