Maybe is depends on the person, but what stitch length do you use when doing straight line quilting?

I increase it a little from my piecing stitch length, up to about 3 or 3.5. It depends on how dense I am quilting as well, I did a very dense cross hatch the other day so I increased it a bit more, if I was doing just diagonal lines every 4 inches I would have it be a bit lower.

Ithink the only time i change my stitch length is when im zig zag stitching. I usually have mine set at 2.5 on the dial. But i also dont know what that number means, Smiley

Seeking scraps! I'm in need of a variety of white on white scraps. (2.5inch square minimum) for pixel quilts. Have any? Swap for? PM me! Smiley
