LEFT-HANDED QUILTING - Hand Sewing - Ladder Stitch
Note - these instructions are written in LEFTISH.
If you are right-handed - just reverse the directions.
Here’s a cool little stitch I used to sew up the open side on the “envelope” – style coaster -
It’s called a “ladder” stitch.
Sew from LEFT to RIGHT.
Slip your needle in “under” the seam allowance on the inside –
Through the top fold from the wrong side -
To hide the quilter's knot
Take a small stitch in the bottom fold –
Directly across from where the needle came out in the top fold –
Then straight back across to top -
Take a bite out of the top fold –
Directly across from where the needle came out in the bottom fold –
Take a couple of more stitches
If I pull it apart a bit - can you see how the stitches make a “ladder”?
Talk to you later – gotta go – gotta sew -
