This foot always slips to the back of my mind until I go touse it, and Im always just amazed at what a wonderful job it does makingcording! Its the only cording foot Ive tried yet. Ilove it using cotton clothesline covered in bias fabric, it makes beautiful homed.cor piping. The last couple of days Ive been working on a pairof Euro sized pillow shams for our bedroom out of recycle denim mixed withOsnaburg. I just finished embroidering them, and am doing the pipingnow. All those years I left the piping off of my projects, because it lookedhard to me. If only Id known LOLCJ TheWandering Quilter's Life in a Box!

I got the coolest thing last weekend at the quilt show in Jacksonville... a ruler called the Groovin Piping Trimming Tool by Susan Cleveland of Piping Hot Binding fame (www.piecesbewithyou.com NAYY). This ruler has a channel in it, which you lay over the stitched piping, and then use to trim the piping to an even width of 1/4" or 1/2" before applying to your item. I usually make my own piping and this tool is the bomb for trimming it up. I formerly used a 1/4" acrylic rod that was a pain in the neck because the piping kept slipping out. I just wish this tool was 18" long rather than 12"- it would take fewer repeats this way.Julie in FL
