Default Quilting Stitch Length

Question: when you quilt your tops, what is your usual stitch length? Iím going to start working with my unquilted tops and Iím not sure what is considered ďnormalĒ using a walking foot. Iím planning to stitch parallel lines more or less, not in the ditch. My inclination when working in the ditch is to take small stitches but I thinking longer would be better for parallel lines. All comments appreciated!

Janice, I don't have a stitch regulator on my sit-down, but my sts tend to be on the longer side because I move the fabric so fast. My sts tend to about 8-10 sts per inch, but YMMV.

Well, so far my stitches arenít great. Some are long, some tiny. Iím not the best at hulking around the quilt so it bogs down a bit. I am using an old top from a swap eons ago, a scrappy trip swap I think. Itís rough as most blocks were askew and off-sized. Itís a great one to practice on. If I get it done without major folds in the back, Iíll be content.

I was working on a block for Bibliostone sand realized that I Paper Pieced one section the wrong way. Would anybody be able to help me with a 7x7 piece of the camouflaged pink frogs. I would love to fix the block. Send me a PM, I will pay for postage.

Janice my stitches are different lengths also, hard to control when you are moving the fabric around manually under the machine.

Lstew sorry I don’t have any of that fabric
