The sewing term "stitch in the ditch" OR "ditch stitch" refers to the term of stitching right in the seam line or in the space between the fabrics in a seam. It’s most commonly used in quilting, attaching waistbands and finishing binding. This article talks about stitch in the ditch as a machine technique, but it can also be done as a hand technique. 

This article walks through the reasons to use this technique, equipment and tips for success.

What is a Quilt? A quilt is a cherished keepsake passed down through generations marking special life events like a wedding or birth of a child. In this Beginner Guide, we share the history of quilts, examples of classic designs, and a basic overview of the process of quilting.  

This tote is a great project to practice a sewing technique you’ve wanted to do in a smaller project that can be finished quickly.  Here I use this project to practice my Free Motion Quilting skills, but you can easily use up old quilt blocks, embroidery, Sashiko, or try another technique for your tote. The basic instructions will work for any material, but it’s tailored to a quilted outer.   

My favorite beginner’s quilt- the Classic 9 Patch
