1  Quick question from a newbie in Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions by lib2 on: August 13, 2008 01:01:06 AM
I'm hoping some of you fabulous skilled sewers can help me with my question.  I have very (very very) little sewing experience, but whatever.  The only way to learn is to try.

So I've decided I want to make this rough patchwork thingamajig.  But I want one of those raised fabric/cord type seams between all the various patches.  In other words, I don't want perfect little side by side patches - I want this raised line, with visible stitching.
Here is a rough example of what I'm talking about:


You see that orange line running between all the patches?  That is what I want.

So how do I do that?  My best guess is that the patches are all sewn together (by machine or hand, it doesn't matter).  Then this orange cord(?) is handstitched on top.  But I feel I may be completely wrong.  Which is why I'm asking some experts for help, lol!

TIA!
