Gwen, here are some pics of how I am joining the rows together.
This pic is sort of blury but it shows the open seam on both sides...be sure the back sides are touching!
I'm thinking of buying a Juki TL-98Q to do some stippling...Crazy Mom Quilts has one and I like her stuff. I've heard it makes all the difference if a person is thinking about quilting at home. I'll keep you updated on that potential purchase. The big question is "Made in Japan" vs. "Made in China"...does it matter? According to the salesman it does...Japan rules, he claims. But it adds $200 more dollars to the cost of the machine....Hmmmm....OK, I've got to go sew!!!
