How to add a peeper....

Sorry I did not have a quilt top that needed a peeper so I am doing the demo on a block, but I am sure everyone can imagine the first photo is a quilt top. I always cut my peepers 1(one) inch wide...measure the first side of your quilt, if necessary join the fabric, so you have a strip that is the length of your first side....
Now fold your peeper in half, as shown, wrong sides together, you can press it if you like I find that it really doesn't need to be pressed at this stage.
Pin the folded peeper along the edge of the quilt...use the same principal that you would use if you were adding a border.
Pin all the way along, do not put tight, as it will pucker....
Pin the peeper to both the left and right sides.
Then sew each side down....but only sew in about 1/8 of an inch, not the normal 1/4 inch...this stitch line is basically holding the peeper in place, when you sew your border on it will secure the peeper..(doing it this way you will also hide your first sewing line)..now press your peepers.
After sewing the right and left sides down you can now do the same procedure and sew the peeper on the top and the bottom....press these down..
Once all sewn you can now add your other border...and thats it....I hope my instructions are easy to follow and I look forward to seeing lots of peepers around blogland.

A great tutorial Peg. I'm sure that will help a lot of confussed quilters out there.

Jacquie said...

Thanks so much. I'm going to do this on the charm quilt I'm working on right now. I think it will change it from ordinary to special.

Catherine said...

What a great tutorial! I can't wait to try it out!

Libby said...

This is such a great design element - just a touch of dimension. It's also fun to put just a little cording (or yarn) inside to fill up that peeper *s*

Carin said...

I love that little folded "peeper" look. Great instructions.

JUST A MOM said...

gggoooottttccha BUT question,, why can't you sew as you go? Do you HAVE to pin it all around?

ROZ said...

Thank you very much, for the info. What a nice touch. I must try it. I thought it was called a welt?

Mar said...

Happy sewing

Thanks for the tutorial. I did this once when I made a cushion. Will have to try it again sometime - looks very effective. Typing this with a purring puss on my lap - what a sook! Happy stitching.

OK, I read it, but ...what is a peeper? I wish there was an end result at the beginning of the tutorial. Or a result at the end. I saw what you did, but I can't figure out what it makes! sorry. I'm new to anything besides regular blocks! I looked at the links...it looks like trim. Why "peeper?" Ha! Sorry for the lame confusion. I'll go research now on flickr. Thanks!

Tex said...

So glad to know what those are called! I'd have called it piping, but that's not exactly right. I love "peeper."

Cathe said...

That's a great design element. We have always called it a faux piping. You can use it in dressmaking, too. Nice tutorial!

John Adams said...

Just stumbled across your blog and I'm enjoying reading through your posts. Your quilts are beautiful! And I LOVE the "peeper" ideas -- I've never seen that before. Here's my question: once your are ready to quilt, do you stitch right over the peeper, or do you lift it up and try to quilt underneath it? Or do you just avoid quilting anywhere near the peeper? Trying to visualize the whole process ...
Thanks!
John

Catherine said...

I've wanted to add peepers to a quilt for ages, but was a bit unsure how to go about doing so. This tutorial is brilliant -- understood it immediately. Thank you!!

stacey said...

[b]Description[/b]

Generic Viagra (sildenafil citrate; brand names include: Aphrodil / Edegra / Erasmo / Penegra / Revatio / Supra / Zwagra) is an effective treatment for erectile dysfunction regardless of the cause or duration of the problem or the age of the patient.
Sildenafil Citrate is the active ingredient used to treat erectile dysfunction (impotence) in men. It can help men who have erectile dysfunction get and sustain an erection when they are sexually excited.
Generic Viagra is manufactured in accordance with World Health Organization standards and guidelines (WHO-GMP). Also you can find on our sites.
Generic Viagra is made with thorough reverse engineering for the sildenafil citrate molecule - a totally different process of making sildenafil and its reaction. That is why it takes effect in 15 minutes compared to other drugs which take 30-40 minutes to take effect.
[b][/b]
Even in the most sexually liberated and self-satisfied of nations, many people still yearn to burn more, to feel ready for bedding no matter what the clock says and to desire their partner of 23 years as much as they did when their love was brand new.
The market is saturated with books on how to revive a flagging libido or spice up monotonous sex, and sex therapists say “lack of desire” is one of the most common complaints they hear from patients, particularly women.
