    To stitch in the ditch means to sew in the seam between two fabrics sewn together. You can quilt like this, sew on the binding, or a waist band on clothing. Really too many things to name, have fun.

    Whenever I make a rail fence design I always quilt in the ditch on my machine. It requires a walking foot; but I love the design the thread gives on the back of the quilt and you can't see the stitches on the front.

    For all of you who are "ditch" quilters: Did you see the two new feet offered by Bernina? They have one specifically for ditch stitching and also a new open toe? I just wish I had a Bernina as I would have both of these feet.

    you can buy feet just like those that will fit any machine. they're usually under $20.

    search on "stitch in the ditch presser feet". you'll find several sources.

    happy hunting. :-)

    For those preser feet, you might want to check out Nancys Notions or Clotilde. both have catalogs on line and a paper catalog if you prefer. Good luck!
