    OK - we all know what SID is right? Stitch in the Ditch!

    Having difficulty keeping my stitch in the ditch - I took a suggestion from a member of this board and tried using a decorative stitch over the ditch. So much easier and looks great!

    So - my new acronym - DSOD or Decorative Stitch Over the Ditch! :-)

    Thanks, great idea! I can't stay exactly where I want to be either. Maybe I'm just not doing something right?

    I like it!!! That's what I do sometimes. Instead of in the ditch I run along the ditch with a fun stitch.

    How nice you FMQ looks! the stippling/meandering is just enough to off set the blocks without detracting from the colors /patterns in the blocks. Just goes to show you that not every inch of a quilt block needs to be quilted.

    That looks really good. I may try that on small quilt. I even have a foot that is for stitching in the ditch, but I still have problems.

    Thank you for the comment on my FMQ! I am still very new to it so your positive reinforcement really helps!
