I'm in a Patsy Cline type of groove as I hum her "Walkin After Midnight" tune while stitching on my Aqua Stars quilt. This Bernina walking foot is awesome.
I never realized how much better my ditch stitching would be with this closed toe foot. Once I trained myself to stop looking at the needle, everything got so much easier! I just line up the seam on that middle mark on the foot and it's magic. The needle just sinks right into the fold and the stitch practically disappears. No more wavering back and forth from one side of the seam to the other. Yahooooo!! Yes, I'm beyond thrilled because my past stitch in the ditch experiences were awful as well as stressful.
Can you see the stitches? Me neither!!
Here's my trick for keeping my project from pleating at cross seams. I bunch up the quilt a lot to ease in any fullness that might creep up on me at the cross seams. It works really well for me!
