|taming the bedquilt|
I'd walking-footed along both sides of major seams and fmq'd in the ditch within each nine-patch triangular block. As Cindy Needham says, stitch E-S-S (every stinking seam).

- the open toe walking foot lets me see enough for straighter and truer stitches;
- using the fmq foot is like driving a sports car instead of a moving van; and
- when restarting, take a stitch in place and relax the finger hold so that the first stitch is not tugged awry.
