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!
