    Does anyone know what is a lock stitch for quilting by machine? Is this a special stitch?
    My machine does have a selection of stitches. Thank you.

    Geraldine,
    It's very likely the back stitch at the beginning or end of each seam you start and end with. I can't imagine it being anything else, that's what I do on those paper patterns to keep them from ripping out when I tear the paper off.

    Hope this helps,
    Sharon

    I have a new machine and it has a button called FIX that takes several stictchs before it goes forward to lock at the begining of the seam.

    I have also heard this term used to "lock the stitches" at the beginning and ending of machine quilting.
