While you may have heard of both meander quilting and stipple quilting, they’re essentially the same process, as the idea with both is to meander across the surface of the quilt.

However, meander quilting is larger scale while stipple quilting is smaller and more concentrated. The goal of both is to create a random pattern without the stitching lines touching or crossing. If you’re having problems with one, it’s likely you’ll struggle with the other as well.
A great idea by @azwendyg on Quilting Board solves common problems like getting stuck in corners and not producing a random look. She draws a squiggly diagram to guide her and has found that is helps a great deal.
Learn more about her method in the following article.
In the article she refers to videos by Leah Day. They’re great introductions to stipple quilting.
In the following video Leah goes more in depth. Between the two, and with the tips from @azwendyg, you’ll soon be meandering successfully while stipple (or meander) quilting.
