I've said it before and I'll say it again: I've always associated Satin Stitch with baby quilts. You know the type...those with appliques so stiff the quilt almost stands up by itself, and dense, smooth satin stitch around the edges (usually 1/4" wide).
Now I'll admit, I've become a SS convert in recent years, but I don't think the SS on my quilts can be defined by the mental picture above. But what else can you call it? Well, today on Sonji's blog, she refers to it as "super zig zag." I love it! Sonji, I hope you don't mind me using your phrase, because it says it so well.
I'll never say the "S" word again!
