    When you do stitch in ditch quilting do you use a special foot (stitch in ditch foot), the walking foot, or something else?

    I use an open foot or my zipper foot. If you can move your needle, try different feet. The open foot really helps me stay in the ditch.

    Initially I used my walking foot, then discovered that using my zipper foot worked much better. I was able to stay right close to the seamline.

    I usually use a walking foot, or open foot, and I never thought about a zipper foot, but that would get close to the seams. I'll have to try that.
