    Fancy piping with decorative stitches

    What good is a machine that will do 143 different stitches if all you do is use the straight stitch and maybe an occasional zigzag? This article from Threads magazine shows how to make fancy piping with decorative stitching on it. I've heard that some quilts have piping on them, but I've never seen it. So now if I ever see one, oooo, how fancy I can get!

    You can get the same "look" on binding, it's very easy to do. I'm not very good with giving directions but I'm sure it's on Goggle somewhere.

    Look around here for more ideas on using piping. There are beautiful details. I might try something like this one day when I grow up. LOL!

    However, often times we have no choice about those 143, when we want specific features.
    I know for me, my machine has too much and does far more than I ever want it to!

    Yup what Quilt E said. But oh how I love those other features! I am trying to use some of the 'fancy' stuff more often tho.
    Never argue with an idiot. They'll drag you down the their level and beat you with experience.

    Yup ... and why we pay the big bucks for what we do not want/need!!

    Now, if it could only be like a vehicle, where we could custom order to our ♥s desire!
