    I used the fix and thread cutter feature on my sewing machine. The fix sews in place several times then continues on making the decorative stitch. There is a slight knot on the underside. I continue until I hit the top stitch edge on the other side, try to stop one stitch before it, and use the thread cutter. Clip my loose threads and move on. The person I gave the runner to loved it. I really liked sewing with this Moda fabric; it felt very rich and luxurious!

    I love this runner as well. I made 9 runners for Christmas gifts for family and this was my husbands favorite hands down. I'm thinking of using it to make myself a Valentine runner. I also think yours is perfect as is.

    Love the idea of decorative stitch . My faithful 1500 went to the repair shop so just yesterday I set up another machine that has some fancy stitches and was wanting something to try them. Question: how did you start and stop the decrative stitches?

    I know I'm a little late to the game, but this is my FAVORITE table runner and I've made several for gifts as well as myself. I also do NOT stitch in the ditch (I don't have the patience), so I also do the "S" stitch. I know what you mean about the crossing together, but I do it anyway. Most of my recipients don't sew so they think whatever it is I make is WONDERFUL. :-)

    With it being a table runner I would think that it would be fine. Looks nice.

    Zig Zag Table Runner quilting help/suggestions?

    Happy New Year everybody! I recently started making Jenny's table runner from her tutorial from a few years ago, I actually made 3. One was a Christmas gift, liked it so much made one (out of a different charm pack) for myself, and now I am making a non-holiday gift for a friend. I used Moda "Behind the Scenes" which I think has a very nice modern/industrial look to it. The first two runners I used scrap cotton batting and quilted with a long "S" stitch on my Viking sewing machine. I do not "stitch in the ditch!" They came out very nice. I thought I would switch things up and use a fancier stitch on my machine for this one. However, I noticed, after I started, that if I stitch in the other direction, where they cross would look pretty ugly. So I only stitched the seams in one direction. I used a fusible fleece, ironed to the backing material. It was all I had on hand. My question is, will the stitching be enough only "half done." And does it look good? I kind of like it. Suggestions?
