It struck me recently that this blog could be a good place to share information on techniques that we come across in the course of creating our quilts. I know that there are several techniques that my fellow Endeavourers have used that I would love to know more about!
Today on my blog I have shared my first attempt at creating a machine wrapped cord and it seemed like that might be something that could easily be incorporated into a spiral themed quilt, so I thought that I would share the technique here too.
With the machine set to a standard zigzag stitch I dropped the feed dogs and pulled the cord through the machine whilst stitching. At times when the cord was more difficult to pull through each thread colour would bunch up but for me that only added to the overall effect.
