Bungie Cord

Recommended Posts

I recently saw a picture of someone with a quilt loaded and She had a bungie cord with beads on it stretched across her top.

Does anyone know what it is for and if there is a source for it? It looks like it would be helpful in keeping your quilt square, but not sure.

The quilter probably floats the tops, and the markers are used to keep the a piecing lines straight.  There are various methods of doing this.  Below is a commercial version of the same thing.

I use pieces of black quarter-inch elastic tied around the top roller to align the edges, center, and midpoints as I roll the quilt forward. The tight elastic stays secure but is flexible enough that I can move up or down the roll to match the current quilt I am working on.
