When I went through the snafu with waiting for the track supports for my long arm, the company gave me some gift cards for my trouble. I used one to buy thus set of couching feet.
I finally got around to trying them out.
Like most things, it isn’t quite as easy as it looks on YouTube! But the videos are helpful. The couching feet have a hole in the center just big enough for the yarn and thread to go through. As you stitch, the thread stitches the yarn to the surface of the quilt. Sometimes it moves too fast and the yarn didn’t get stitched down.
I also learned that I have to keep the yarn loose, but beware of kinks.
Also, filling in areas will take a lot of practice!
It was a fun experiment. It will be fun to play with some different yarns. It could be fun to use this technique on a baby quilt.
Have a great day!
