    ok, i think i'm confused( not an unusual state for me). i didn't realize you could sid with a JF. Isn't it to be used with dogs down? did you go side to side or up and down? joanne, your work is gorgeous, I may have to give JF another try!

    Wow. That just confirms what I already knew--I have a lot to learn.

    way too funny - I posted the WRONG pictures here. Obviously, my bug cra***ed in my brain! I'll show the one's I did on the Flynn Frame tomorrow! All of these were hand-quilted LOL

    I use SID because I have a guideline (seam) to sew down.
    I have a shot at finishing the quilt because I am still too insecure to try other methods and I like the soft feel of a quilt that is not stiff from stippling.
    Using the SID foot helps me stabilize the path (unless I drank more than 2 glasses of wine and the stitch is the "falling drunk along the ditch bank." :lol:)

    Will I advance? Hopefully. Has anyone ever commented on the fact that their gift was "only" done with a SID? Never.

    I have actually seen handquilting done in the ditch. Now THAT I don't understand.

    What size needle is recommended doing stitch in the ditch? My walking foot kept jamming and so did my cotton thread. Could it be a worn or universal wrong size needle could cause it? What size needle should I use for a cotton top and bottom quilt with low loft batting? Thanks Pauline

    First you need to find out why is your walking foot jamming. Did you put
    it properly? Check your user manual. For needle, I prefer to use Schmetz
    90/14. If you haven't changed your needle on your machine for a while it's
    probably a good idea to do so anyway. :D
