I had a some questions regarding the zig zag stitches along the quilts edge in this post. I zig zag the edges after I finish the quilting & squaring to prepare the edges for binding. It only takes a few minutes to do since I do a large zig zag, and it makes the edges so tight and neat while I’m sewing the binding on. I started doing it along time ago after Amber posted about serging the edges…and since I don’t have a serger, the zig zag works just as well. Try it……you’ll like it.
