Edge-to-edge quilting over applique
Just thought I'd put this photo up of a quilt that went through this week. Sometimes I'm asked to do stitch-in-the-ditch with applique quilts. Now, there are times when the quilt warrants that investment, but there also times when it doesn't. That's because stitch-in-the-ditch is actually custom quilting which is more labour-intensive than edge-to-edge or all-over quilting. This photo shows a meander pattern "Happy Times" being used on a quilt with some applique. It shows that e2e quilting over applique in this instance is appropriate - and more affordable for the customer!
