I might have made a huge mistake.

15 years ago

I finished my quilt top and it is so gorgeous. Its all Kaffe Fassett fabrics. It is made with hundreds of 2 inch squares. I thought I was being clever, and to reduce bulk I pressed open all the seams, it lays so nice and flat I love it. However, it is supposed to be "stitched in the ditch" Is this going to work? Please tell me I didn't ruin this quilt. Its important for the quilting to be in the ditch. Its from Kaffe Fassett's pattern "Crosses" and stitching in the ditch makes the "crosses" puff out.

Will the batting and backing be enough to hold this together? Should I use heavy thread?
