Do you couch?

I saw this couching method by Sharon Pederson on the daily blog of the Quilt Show and just have to pass it on. It is pretty ingenious. You can also find it on YouTube. Just search for Sharon Pederson – lesson 20. I have couched on some scrap fabric, but will have to try it on a real project one of these days. I wonder where I can buy that type of ribbon. Does anyone know?

  1. I’ve gotten it a Michaels and Joannes. I haven’t bought any for years but I assume they still carry it. I still have a lot of it, especially metallics since that’s what I used a lot.

    1. Thank you Jeannie. I have seen ribbon at Michaels and I actually may have some, but I always thought that was more the type of ribbon used for wrapping gifts and wonder if it will stand up to washing. I was more thinking of silk ribbon. Perhaps I should try a store that sells ribbon for silk embroidery.
