How did you attach the scissors?

Since you have lots of curves/circles, remember to pivot, pivot, pivot.

I found the link that was most helpful when I was figuring this out:

Invisible thread often likes to unspool in one direction only, so try re-orienting your spool - if you had it horizontal, try vertical or vice versa.  I don't usually use it in the bobbin, so consider using a regular thread in the bobbin.  As mentioned above, you may have to adjust tentions.  I rarely have trouble, although maybe I'm just lucky.  I also spray baste and pin unless I'm using Minky, which is too heavy for spray basting to hold.

Thanks!  Minky is kind of a pain to work with - I hand basted the whole thing to machine quilt it.  I do love how it looks once quilted, though.

From Last Minute Patchwork + Gifts.  I reduced the pattern by about 2/3rds and machine appliqued the wheel on Quilters Only Parchment.  Backed with pink Minky and bound in Kona - charcoal, I think.  This was a gift for our friends' baby, Eleanor.

Similar to mitering the corners on a quilt binding.  Once you start playing with some bias tape you'll figure out how to make it do what you want.

I don't seem to have saved any of the bookmarks.  I can explain what I did if that would help.  I found two designs that I liked and printed them out to size.  I noted where the cord went over and under.  I cut strips and made my own bias tape.  Some sites recommend fusible tape, but I have never used that and wanted certain colors. 

I traced the knots onto my background fabric using washable Crayola markers, again, noting overs and unders.  Starting at an "under", I secured the end of the tape, and pinned it along the shape I had drawn.  Then I hand appliqued the strip. 

Where it became unwieldy or at the end of the strip, I would cut the strip at an "under" and secure it, then start a new strip at the same "under" butting up the edges. 

I hope that a)makes sense and b) helps.

I just googled around and found some directions.  I might have them bookmarked at home.  The sneaky thing about it is that the knot isn't really continuous.  You can start and stop where the cord overlaps itself.  And use lots of short pins.
