I am currently working on my first quilt and am ready to start quilting - I have five 2" black strips that run the length of the quilt plus my black border - I am planning on "stitching in the ditch" and was going to use an "S" type stitch. I did my first row but the stitches were not even and I didn't like the look of it. Does anyone have any suggestions as to what type of stitch would look good plus be a little easier to do. My quilt is around 50" wide x 60" long. I want to do this myself rather than give it to someone else to quilt. I am new to sewing and quilting so it has been a learning curve for me - kind of "winging" it while I go! Thanks for any help.
