Don’t get me wrong — I enjoy the quilting portion of making a quilt. Still, before doing the fun free-motion part, a certain amount of stitching in the ditch is necessary to stabilize the quilt and prevent the layers shifting. That part is sort of boring, IMHO. But that’s the part I’ve been working on lately. The good news is that I’m coming down the home stretch and will then be able to begin the free motion — much more fun!
