I love Rick Rack!
I shared this quilt top last week and thanks for all the great ideas for a name. I was not thrilled with the contrast of the quilt and while quilting it out this week I felt the colors were reading somewhat anemic and bland. I dug around and found some wonderful cotton jumbo (aprox 1.5" wide) black rick rack that I had stashed in the bottom of a basket and WOW!
I decided to do a pieced binding (below) and I like it, but next time I will make the strips 1/2 WOF rather than full to break it up a little more.
I was even able to find a model to pose with this quilt!
RRR (Rick Rack Rocks) will be the name of this quilt! To celebrate my love of rick rack and to thank you for the name suggestions, I am going to giveaway this set of 4 note cards that feature red rick rack! To enter just leave a comment!
I leave you with this picture from my back yard. While posing the RRR quilt for its close up I got a whiff of the scent from these lovely signs of spring. We are heading to the mountains for our much anticipated spring break ski trip this week and expect to return to full-on spring at home!
Enjoy your weekend whatever season you are currently in and be sure to check out the other great projects on Amy's Sew & Tell.
