Last night I attempted to stitch in the ditch with a decorative stitch. I saw the idea on this board somewhere and thought it was a great twist to an old stand-by, so I tried it for the first time. I used a vine kind of pattern with the occasional leaf here and there, except even tho I tried to help feed the quilt sandwich through the machine, it still ended up looking like an indistinguishable mess. I finally gave up and went to a straight stitch....still had some difficulty getting the fabric to feed thru the machine, but it worked better and alleviated my frustration, which was a good thing.
Any suggestions or helpful hints? I like the idea and want to try it. I tried it on a 4" scrap sandwich and it worked great, but was a tad more challenging on a queen quilt.
