I wanted to mention some designs that can be used instead of meandering, but with a similar effect. Sometimes meandering feels overwhelming for new quilters, and a simpler pattern is needed while learning to coordinate the hands and the stitching speed.
These patterns require fewer decisions to make as you quilt, so if you want a simple non-meandering pattern for your next quilt, check them out. Worked in a low contrast thread they give off the same initial impression as meandering on the finished quilt, but can be worked straight across the quilt in rows. You can use strips of masking tape laid across the quilt to help keep your rows an even height as you work across.
