Rick Rack

In the last few weeks there has been no quilting going on here due to being under the weather.

But, i have done some piecing here and there....when not napping. haha

I got to thinking that while downsizing fabrics and thread and such....what about all those other rick rack?

So, i decided to use up some rick rack. cut out 8" blocks for the colors of rick rack that i had....sewed 3 lines for each block....and put them all together. here is what i got.


Some rick rack was wide...some narrow

I used up all the colored rick rack that i had....just have white, black, gold and silver left.

While trying to press this top....and having a time with the rick rack points.....i though perhaps i should have sewed down each one on the sides rather than the middle. it will make for some interesting quilting when i get to it. this might be a one handed quilting job to hold it all down flat....or maybe not. haha

Perhaps this came about because i was delusional in my that the word i want?  i seem to have lost some brain cells.

now what do i do with all that seam binding? any ideas?
