    My second quilt/first machine quilt

    Here is my first machine quilt....I tried the std but I'm gonna have to work on that following a line thing!! LOL. It is for my daughter's birthday and her living area is done in blacks/whites. Since I started it late Nov/early Dec I got stuck on blacks/whites and now have quite the stash of blacks/whites!

    Very pretty. If I do straight line quilting (hardly ever), I sew about 1/4" from the seam and I think it looks neater.

    I love your quilt. Isn't it funny, you can put any design in black and white and it goes together really good. Good job!

    Black and white is always stunning. In case no one told you, for stitch in the ditch, remember to stitch on the side that has the valley. That is the side that the seam is not pressed to. I can't tell in the photo, you may already know that.

    Beautiful B&W! I also had a problem with SITD until I got a SITD foot for my machine. Now I know you can't get one for all machines, especially the older ones, but I was able to get one for my Viking and my Pfaff and now I don't mind SITD at all. It has a "flange", I guess you'd call it, on it that pretty much keeps it running right in the ditch. This was a foot I purchased after having had my machines for quite awhile.

    Black and white always looks good. It can go for any age or decor.

    Good for you, making this for your daughter. It looks great! Remember we all had to learn to make straight lines, practice makes perfect. In the meantime, you've created a lovely gift. Pat yourself on the back!
