Recently a couple of people have asked how Ideal with stitch in the ditch on seams that are pressed open.
In my opinion, the best way to handle seams that are pressed open is to do some sort of continuous curves like on this star. It takes the stress off the seams and looks nice too. It’s what Margaret Soloman Gunn did on my friend’s heart quilt and it worked great.
That wasn’t really an option for the effect that I wanted on my Lura’s Choice quilt.
My solution on this one is to set my “ditch” a little bit away from the seam. As long as it’s consistent it looks OK. Some seams are pressed to the side so I can really stitch them in the ditch. On the others I stitch a bit away like I did in the shibori section here.
I haven’t had a lot of quilting time this week but I did eek out 3 more blocks.
I need to stop letting the wall distract me and spend more time on this in June.
