    How to Sew the Ladder Stitch

    I was reading old messages about the Clover Wonder Clips and there were references to the "ladder stitch". Several posters asked what it was but I didn't see any replies.

    I had seen this demonstrated at this site and used it for my bindings. It was wonderful !! and invisible !! I thought I'd share the link.

    Nice tutorial. I use the ladder stitch on binding, and all of my applique. It is quite invisable. And I don't have to worry so much about matching thread color for applique.

    I LOVE using the ladder stitch!! When I saw it originally posted, I immediately tried it. I'll NEVER go back to the other way of sewing bindings on. I even shared this method with the members of my quilting group (some of them are truly masters) and they loved it too.

    Now I know it has a name! When I have shown friend how to do it, I just told them .."it's the way my grandma always told me was the right way to do things." You ddn't argue with grandma's wisdom.
