So after you’re done weaving, what happens to all those raw edges?
Thank you for your comment. The edges are stitched down during the quilting. Top stitch just inside each long edge. The vertical and horizontal stitch line will overlap, making a nice additional design Also, you can add a border or bind it, and you can mount it on a canvas to use as a wall hanging. If none of these interest you, I recommend using your zig zag stitch with the feed dogs down. Later your project with batting and backing. Then you will want to move your fabric slowly and have your machine go at high speed. It will creat a satin stitch effect on the edge of your fabric. I generally will line the edge of my fabric where the satin stitch will just fall off the edge on the right side and the rest of the stitch will lie on the project. It’s particularly stunning if you use a thread with a sheen. Let me know if you have any further questions. One more point, the remaining raw edges have the steam a seam adhered, no worries regarding raveling, the steam a seam finishes the edge.

I truly appreciate the tutorial but I find it so difficult to believe this program can’t afford to give you a large flat cutting mat or proper ironing surface. The table is huge so it looks ridiculous that you’re being forced to cut on a bouncy mat. You mention taping it down on a cutting mat so why not bring one and show that technique? Weird. Just some feedback that hopefully helps future videos.
Hi, Pamela. Unfortunately, many of the talents travel from great distance. Putting it in our suitcases is difficult at best. It can damage and or warp our large cutting mats if they even fit in our bags. We also bring our machines and tape many segments at on shoot, so we need to bring any supply for each segment along, forcing us to make difficult decisions on what we can do without. I’m sorry this has inconvenienced you, we felt this was the best was to demonstrate this project with what we could carry along. Hope this helped you, have a great day.
I see that when this video was edited, it was left out that you should press onto an Applique sheet. That will keep all pieces stable without ruining your ironing board cover. When you are ready to quilt your piece, you will simple layed with a backing fabric, batting and then top it off with your fabric weave. you may choose at this point to press your weave onto your batting. Have fun and post your photos on our facebook page!
