This Stitch is Perfect for Turned Quilt Projects and More!
Quilt projects that are turned instead of bound are great for quick finishes. However, that often leaves an opening that needs to be hand-sewn shut.
Many hand stitches will be noticeable and detract from a polished finish. However, a ladder stitch will virtually disappear, which makes it invaluable for turned projects of all kinds (also known as the blind, slip or invisible stitch).
It’s simple to do, too. You’ll find excellent instructions in the following article from Sew4Home.
Or watch the video below from Online Fabric Store to see exactly how a ladder stitch is made.
You’re sure to find many uses for this stitch and will be glad to have it in your repertoire.

PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article). That way you can contact Support for that source if you have downloading problems or other issues. Thank you!
