    Phooey on them!!

    I found out I was SID the wrong way. I didn't know I was supposed to stitch on one side or the other and I just wing it... I have never taken a class or anything (can you guess?) LOL!

    It doesn't lmatter how you finish your quilt. It is your choice and no one elses business. I hand quilt and the lstitches are all sizes sometimes depending on how the old Arthritis is at the time. I tie a lot too and outline too. No one who gets the quilts has ever complained. They just get a big ole smile on thier face and say thanks mom/grandma!!!

    Any quilting that I do I consider quilting...I always think if someone is saying something to be rude that maybe they don't feel good about what THEY do...so they try and "tear" someone else's work down to build themselves up...just my opinion.

    Okay, so I just watched a Q&A with Jenny Doan and she says stitch in the ditch is one of the hardest methods of quilting, because it is easy to pop out of the ditch. Thank you Jenny!

    I agree with others who say you should ignore what others have to say about the way YOU quilt YOUR quilts. You probably don't pick on the way they quilt their quilt...right?

    If a quilt requires longarm custom quilting it is sometime stitched in the ditch in specific areas to enhance the quilt & quilting.
