On each of the examples shown, you can see the type of stitch design used on the left and right dark edges, and the results of the pressure of the thread on the interior portion of the designs. It can help create variety of color and design if that is what you are looking for; but if not, then you will have to adjust the number of folds, or the pressure on the fabric while sewing. The folds are two inches widee, but for rank beginners I would not advise anything less than 4" for the folds.

|Just for the heck of it I asked Amy to try a stacked Check mark design. Bless her heart she did it.|
