Quilting Around the Edge of Appliqué
After all the work I put into the appliqué on the Diamond Jubilee wall hanging, I had to work out the best way of quilting around the edges before I launched into the free-motion quilting.
The ideal foot to use was the adjustable cording foot, usually used for zips. Not only is it adjustable, but also it is hinged, so it rides easily over the inevitable bumps.
The red arabesque at the top of the hanging was nothing but curves and corners, but the cording foot made relatively easy work of it.
I was pleased with finished effect - the blanket stitch edging really stood out in relief.
