    Okay, so I finished a quilt(jellyroll sewn end to end). I stitched in the ditch and fmq the border. But now I think it needs more quilting in between the sid, is it possible to add more quilting once the quilt is done. Sorry if this is an odd question, I'm a newbee :oops:

    The nice thing is that you can just work in the area you want. You don't need to pin it or secure it because the SID already takes care of that.

    Didn't think this was an odd question. I'm just starting to machine quilt so this is great info. If you didn't ask, I'd have to at some point.

    sure it is, i think it's a little easier to go back and add more; the sandwich is all done, just have to sew :D
