Cutting, piecing, sewing, 36 yds of piping. In my best pirate voice, "...pin it down, stitch it around, 35 yds of piping on the floor..."
I've sewn a lot over the years but I've never done piping before and it's very time consuming, especially on a project this size. I cut and pieced the fabric the "old school" way but have since now found a different, quicker way that I will use from now on.
This would have saved me a lot of time!
