    You could just meander all over. It's much easier than stitch in the ditch. I've done a hundred with designs but I can never get the in the ditch straight.

    SID is harder to me than an all over meander..... sometimes I'm in the ditch and sometimes I"m not..... frustrating

    I agree...the straight lines for SITD for much harder than doing a large all over meander. Most batting you can go 4-10" between quilting...get creative...go diagonal through the blocks. I love the D9P pattern and have quilted it a bunch of ways. It is easy to do them.

    I did SITD on my D9P and had no trouble. It was the first time I had machine quilted.

    Are you all quilting in ditch on regular sewing machine, or on a long-arm?

    I sitch in ditch and the large square, run stitching in one fourth parallel fashion not checker board.. just one same direction for all.

    I back stitch then move over to another area and clip the extra threads to get good set on stitch in ditch.

    fast, easy and pretty on back too..

    Engineer back ground. like the straight lines.. :0)
