    I do like to use painter's tape to stitch along but it's a great tip for not sewing down the edge.

    I am considering doing more straight line quilting. I have a Phaff which does great straight line stitching with the built in IDT. I is soooo costly to send quilts out for long arm quilting. I am doing lots of quilts lately and would like to quilt some on my own. ANa try as I might I am just no good at FMQ

    So thanks, I have been looking at ideas for this, I like the random width, it looks very modern.

    Your tute came just in time. I love to free motion quilt but it causes problems with my neck muscles and I need to do something else. I'll give it a try next time.

    Thank You for the link. Sometimes we never think of the simple ways to do things. She has a lot of tutorials.

    I love this site that you provided. I'm not a seasoned quilter and I love the look of this simple quilting patterns. Thanks again.

    Wow... perfect timing for me as well. I'm currently working on a small quilt and just finished doing all the stitch-in-the-ditch work, and was starting to fret about having to do free-motion stippling (which I cannot seem to master) inside the larger blocks. I love her straight-line stitching! I'm definitely going to try it.

    Thanks for the tip, I've used the painters tape for other things in quilting but never thought to use it this way, now i can straight line stitch my free hand quilting...YEA!YEA!
    Freedom is costly and quilting keeps us busy...
