I used the #10 and the #32 feet on the Bernina, size #3 pearl cotton embroidery thread for the cording, cut the piping strips at 1" wide and the binding strips at 3-5/8" wide.
The first step was to insert the piping inside the piping binding. This is where the #32 cording foot was used as well as moving the needle 2 positions to the right.
The second step was to attach the piping to the binding. The same foot and needle position were used for this step. I also placed some painter's tape at 1-5/8 inches to the right of the needle (keep the needle in the same position and measure from that spot).
Then you need to press the binding so that the piping sticks out. Here it is on the back side.
And this is what it looks like on the front side.
That is how the piped binding was prepared. The way to attach this to the quilt is in the next blog post.
So stay tuned!
