Rickrack




So today I'm trying something I have never done before. I'm going to sew rickrack onto my flower fans. I know some of you are gasping in disbelief that I have never used rickrack, but since I don't make garments I have never had occasion to use it before. First I'm pinned (yes, I'm a pinner) and then I took a deep breath and sewed. And guess what! It worked! Yee-haw! Now all my fans are appliqued down and it is time to start on the stars. I think I'll leave those until tomorrow. Happy quilting!
