OK, so I tried the in the ditch on my latest project (runner and centerpiece pad) with the Blackfordís Beauty patches. It was quite hideous and after ripping it all out Iíve decided to tack it, but Iíd like to back tack it, that is knots in back rather than the front. Does anyone with experience with this method have any suggestions? I think embroidery thread should do, and small knots in back evenly spaced in the design (at all corners etc.), though I donít really want to interrupt the patched pieces themselves; any thoughts on this?
