    When I do cross hatch quilting my machine, should I complete one direction and then the other or should I alternate directions? I know to start in the middle and work out, but I'm unsure about directions. Thanks. - Cynthia

    I like to alternate directions, it helps me to keep from getting puckers in the backing :D:D:D
