Experimenting with Home Made Braid
This is a detail of a project I have just finished. I tried out the instant braid made with twisted embroidery cotton, with several strips laid side by side. It gave just the effect I wanted. There was a slight problem with a bit of pulling, leaving the background fabric with a tiny bit of fullness, but this was all absorbed by the quilting. It was fun to do, a bit time consuming, and I think I shall be doing this again in the future.
