Tie Off after designing Stitch in the Ditch via Pro Stitcher
I created a Stitch in the Ditch for a block with 4 seams that needed to be ditch stitched. It tied off correctly at the start point and after each of the jump stitches but I can't seem to figure out how to make it tie off at the end. In my settings, I have the start and end tie-offs set the same...it works using the pulldown designs but I can't seem to make it tie off at the end when I created this ditch stitch design.
Can you tell me what step I missed that is keeping it from doing the last tie-off?
I am sorry you are having problems with your tie-off stitch. We are aware of a bug with this. If you use the Tack stitch instead of the Micro-tack it works. Try going around a block without using the jump stitch.
If you have any further questions please call Handi Quilter at 1-877-697-8458, M-F, 8-5 MST.

Cheryl, thanks for the note. On the first quilt I stitched, I ended up manually ending the stitches at the end of each of the 30 blocks. This morning I put the 2nd quilt on the machine and the solution occurred to me......just end with a jump stitch even though I'm not going to jump anywhere. It worked! The stitch is locked down and I can program the next set of blocks. FYI......the blocks are actually circles made from strips and I needed to stitch in the ditch on each of the 4 seams in the 30 blocks.
I love this feature on the Pro-Stitcher.....there was NO WAY I was going to manually stitch in the ditch 120 times on each quilt! Just let the machine do it for me and end up with nice straight, beautiful lines.
